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).
