Guided Walk: Hawkcombe Nature Reserve Butterflies

This walk with ENPA Woodland Officer, Graham McVittie, will look at some of the coppice management work in this National Nature Reserve to help the recovery of the heath fritillary butterfly (aka the Woodman’s Follower), though sight of the butterfly is entirely weather dependent. We will also follow a circular route through the woods to see other butterflies including the silver washed fritillary (hopefully).

3mls/2hrs. Dogs on leads.

Meet: Car-park on south of A39, 400m west of cattle grid at top of Porlock Hill. TA24 8LT but do NOT go down to Bromham Farm.

Current Government regulations allow groups of up to 30 people to meet for exercise. If these should change and this walk is able to go ahead, we will update information accordingly. BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL in any case, using the form below.
