Churchyard Survey - Herts & Middx Butterfly Conservation

Churchyard Butterfly Survey

In both counties churchyards can offer a green haven in both built up areas and areas of intensive agriculture.

St James, Enfield Wash, Middlesex Holy Trinity, Weston, Hertfordshire

We would like to find out more about what lives there and run an ongoing survey that would be easy for volunteers to carry out.

We would like members to adopt a local churchyard and visit at least four times a year, at key flight times, to record butterflies that you see there.

We will share this information with each church in the hope that it might provide pointers for butterfly friendly maintenance and more information about local diversity.

Both the St Albans and London dioceses have been contacted and their environmental staff are supportive of this idea.

If you are interested in taking part please contact Andrew Wood (details on the committee page)
