Litter Picking and Butterfly Count

Posted on 22nd July, 2012 in Events | News | Wildlife

Today the friends met to pick litter in the wood and park. Amongst the items found were a BB gun and a vintage fireplace surround! And there was the usual array of deflated footballs and Sainsburys detritus.

It was a roasting hot day and we had a chance to fill in our forms for the Big Butterfly Count. We saw:

  • 2x Small White
  • 2x Speckled Wood
  • 1x Red Admiral

Looking at the results it seems as though lots of people in the local area took part – perhaps this is due to the poster we put up in DKH Open Space noticeboard?!
