About the event

Speckled wood, silver washed fritillary, wood white, and large skipper are just some of the many butterflies that you may see flitting along the edges of the rides on south side of Haugh Wood on our butterfly safari - and the prize might be a sighting of the white-letter hairstreak. It will be led by Martyn Davies, who has written a definitive study of the Haugh Wood white-letter hairstreak.



Free, donations welcome. All donations will go towards Herefordshire Wildlife Trust's conservation work across the county.
