Pewsey Downs National Nature Reserve 

On the 17th and 24th August, Natural England will be carrying out surveys for Marsh Fritillary butterfly larvae on the Pewsey Downs National Nature Reserve above Alton Barnes. No previous experience or knowledge is required but volunteers need to be comfortable walking on steep slopes and be fit enough to walk a reasonable distance on open exposed ground. Drinks and refreshments will be available. This survey is an important part of our monitoring work which helps guide our management of the National Nature Reserve, so again, any help would be very gratefully received.
