A New Reserve for Lancashire Branch

Maurice Avent, Chairman Of Butterfly Conservation and Simon Hodgson, Chief Executive of Forestry Commission England at the opening of Myers Allotment, Silverdale

This 7 hectare site in the Morecambe Bay Limestone landscape is our first reserve dedicated to providing habitat for the High Brown Fritillary.

Since taking over the site on 1st March 2011 volunteers have been hard at work removing scrub and opening up grassland to improve the habitat for butterflies and moths.
The site is now open for visits and you are welcome to come and view progress - and perhaps be inspired to join a work party!
