Walk the 1.5 mile Hawksgrove butterfly transect and look for white admiral, silver-washed fritillary and maybe even purple emperor among the 15 or so species possible. Meet at 10.30 am by the car park on Howe Farm track, morning only.
The Friends of Bentley Wood is a charitable organisation of supporters of Bentley Wood. Its members meet for social events, educational and fun walks and other events in the wood itself. Everyone living in the local villages around the wood (particularly Farley and Pitton, Firsdown, Winterslow, West and East Tytherley, West Dean and West and East Grimstead) is welcome (and encouraged) to join. We would like to encourage more local members this year and are doing our bit to support the Hook and Glove too!
