The White-letter Hairstreaks are out at our Alners Gorse reserve with at least ten individuals seen on the 05/07/2015 along the Elm and Ash hedgerow.

Keep an eye out wherever you are in Dorset for these high-flying butterflies, particularly in areas where Elm abounds and Bramble flowers flourish nearby – send us your sightings!
