About the event

We have probably all seen a Red Admiral butterfly, but have you seen a White Admiral?  With its characteristic gliding flight and striking bands of white across its brown/black upper wing, it isn’t white at all. For a chance to see this stunning butterfly, join Martyn Davies, local butterfly expert, for a guided butterfly hunt at Joan’s Hill Farm on the edge of Haugh Wood.



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