Description: An introduction to typical butterflies of gardens, meadows, woodland rides/hedgerows, with the emphasis on butterfly biology, identification features, flight seasons and habitat preferences and provision of information on how to record/census butterflies.
The course will cater for those with no butterfly knowledge and those with some experience.
The course will commence with an indoors presentation to introduce the subject followed up by field observations in the nature reserve at the Wildlife Centre. We will return to the centre to enter records of species encountered outdoors to the Butterfly Conservation on-line Web-site.
If possible, participants should bring close-focussing binoculars (useful but not essential).
Bookings: Cost is £20. Please contact Sharon Davies at The Welsh Wildlife Centre on 01239 621600. We would ask you to please book by 20th June.
