Cotswold Grassland Week: An afternoon walk around Daneway Banks: the home of the Large Blue Butterfly

Tuesday 09/06/15 15:00 - 16:30

Daneway Banks Nature Reserve

A walk in the Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust's Daneway Banks nature reserve.

The Reserve Manager will lead the walk around this wonderful wildlife haven and explain what makes this nationally important grassland so special.

Daneway Banks nature reserve is a wonderful example of limestone grassland and home to the rare Large Blue butterfly. In spring and summer the banks explode with colour from orchids, rock-rose and cowslips whilst the air buzzes with the sound of bees and the occasional croak from a raven overhead.

The walk should be dry so walking boots will be adequate.

Suitable for families.
