Butterflies of Kent

This session covers all of the butterfly species which have been regularly found in Kent, and examines the winners and losers in the county over the past 100 years in the context of the environmental changes which have occurred in that time. Detailed identification tips for each family will be given as well as practical advice on how to encourage butterflies in the garden, on civic land and in the countryside. A field trip to Orlestone Forest will give participants an opportunity to put their practical skills to the test and will also provide an opportunity to hear Nightingales and other migrant birds.
