We would be very grateful for your help at this practical conservation day to further increase habitat for the Marsh Fritillary. We will be cutting scrub to further open up this area and there will be a fire. Your survey work this year has shown that the butterfly is now breeding very close by and we want to help it return to this lovely site that is accessible to the local community. There will be mince pies at this one!

This event is part of the Heritage Lottery Funded 'All the Moor Butterflies' project.
