Butterfly walk – 2nd August

16 Jul

Butterfly walk – 2nd August 2014.

Following WildSherston, Maurice Avent from Butterfly Conservation has kindly agreed to guide us through his own wildlife reserve not far from Sherston on Saturday 2nd August at 11.30am.

Yatton Down is a 36 acre site Maurice has been managing for many years particularly for butterflys – more details at http://www.talking-naturally.co.uk/yatton-down-wiltshire/

Not far from Castle Coombe – directions are:

Directions to Yatton Down: 
From the A420 four miles south of Chippenham (heading towards Bath and Bristol), turn onto a minor road signposted to West Yatton directly opposite “The Crown Inn”. Follow this (narrow) road for about a mile until it drops to the right down a sleep slope. At the bottom of the slope there is a sign pointing left towards Long Dean. Just after this turning is a ‘flattened’ embankment under some large trees, and most people park here. Access to the Down is through a gate immediately opposite this ‘parking area’ on the other side of the road.

Subject to the weather this promises to be a very interesting trip for all kinds of wildlife.

If you are interested please let me know.
