Guided walk - Hawkcombe Butterfly Walk
On this walk we will be looking at some of the coppice management work being done in this National Nature Reserve to help the recovery of the heath fritillary butterfly (aka the Woodmans Follower). Sight of the butterfly is entirely weather dependant. We will also follow a circular route through the woods to see other butterflies including the silver washed fritillary (hopefully). Dogs on leads.
3 miles. Please bring appropriate clothing and footwear for uneven ground and unreliable weather.
Meet at car-park on south of A39, 400m west of cattle grid at top of Porlock Hill, SS 861 460, 1pm. NB. Do not go down to Bromham Farm; postcode for guidance only.
