Uta says "This is a relatively new plantation along a dismantled railway line which is apparently good for butterflies and the Small Blue butterfly was found there. One of our tasks will be to try and find its food plant Anthyllis vulneraria Kidney Vetch.

"The meeting point is at SP 496 854, just off the A5 on the road to the village of Willey. From there we will have to cross the A5 to walk along a public footpath to the site at SP 499 858.

Please use this link to access the doodle poll and let us know if you would like to come and also if you would like to carshare".

Uta's mobile number is 07852 682790.
