Brief details
Join ENPA’s Woodland Officer Graham McVittie to 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).
