Woolston Eyes Butterfly Workshop - POSTPONED DUE TO THE WEATHER TO SUNDAY 21st July 2019 10:00am to 12:00 Noon

Want to spend a leisurely morning at Woolston Eyes, whilst learning to identify some of the many species of butterfly to be found here? Then come along to this workshop which is free of charge and open to all. We will be walking the Butterfly Transect, a distance of about 2 kilometres, and recording all butterflies along the way. We expect to see up to ten different species and there is always the possibility of something unusual turning up! There are a number of Buddleias on the route and these usually prove a magnet for butterflies searching for nectar.

Sensible footwear is recommended but no previous experience or knowledge is required.

The barrier to the track entrance at the end of Thelwall lane will be open from 09:45am for those arriving by car. Meet at the No.3 bed car park at 10 a.m. Click here for a map showing the position of No3 bed car park….

In the event of inclement weather please check the website on the day to check the event is going ahead.

I look forward to seeing you then. Dave Hackett WECG Warden
