The walk is intended to be a casual, guided wander around Beckley Woods looking for - and hopefully finding - some of our wonderful summer butterflies. We could see Silver-washed Fritillary, White Admiral, Peacock, Red Admiral and more. Plus, there are dragonflies galore! Much conservation work has been done in this Forestry Commission Wood, using funding from Butterfly Conservation, over the last few years and the results are beginning to pay off.

Children are very welcome - in fact, children are actively encouraged to attend. Dogs tend to frighten the butterflies (and sometimes other visitors), but are welcome as long as they are kept on leads. We look forward to meeting you.
