This out of county butterfly walk will focus on seeing the marsh fritillary which is usually found in good numbers at Strawberry Banks. The reserve also supports several other interesting butterflies species and is also great for wild flowers including wild columbine and lesser butterfly orchid and the elusive hazel dormouse.

A light/quick lunch at the Daneway Inn offering an opportunity to quench our thirst if the weather is fine will be followed by a visit to Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust's Daneway Banks SSSI Reserve where the Large Blue butterfly has been re-introduced. We may also see the dark green fritillary, small blue and marble white among others.
