Hello. Is it best to see the Brown Hairstreaks soon after they emerge ? Have they emerged, yet ? Do you have Marbled White there, please ? Thank you.

Quick look in the Garden and briefly saw Broad Bodied Chaser before been chased off by a Four-Spot Chaser. In the woods found lots of Straw Dot moths & a Clouded Border. Butterflies seen were 4 White Admirals, marbled White and lots of Large Skippers, Small Skippers, Tortoiseshells, Red Admirals, Small Whites, Meadow Browns & Ringlets. Also saw a Hornet fly past:) Nice afternoon walk, will be back for Hairstreaks:)

I visited the wood today with my sons' dog and was a bit disappointed at the apparent lack of dog 'poo' bins. Perhaps I just missed them. The first thing our dog wants after a car ride is a toilet stop, so I picked up the mess, and then what ? Visitor centre looks good, although it was not open, toilets definitely useful and leaflets available to help you get around. Overall worth a visit.

Hi Dave Thanks for your comment. There is a dog bin at Chambers. It is at the start of the trails just after the car park barrier. I hope you can find it on your next visit.
