Butterfly Day in support of Save our Butterflies Week (18th – 26th May)

Last Sunday 26th May, Montefiore Woodland held a successful Butterfly Day to support Save our Butterflies Week (18th – 26th May). This was an opportunity for members of the public to learn about the species of butterfly that can be seen within the woodland and in the local area! Despite the poor weather this spring, by mid-day the sun emerged from the clouds and the butterflies took to the wing to the pleasure of the steady number of visitors that attended this event. In total varying numbers of six species were seen including: Speckled Wood, Small, Large and Green-Veined White, Holly Blue and Comma.
