Butterflies & Glow Worms

Please join our Big Butterfly and Glow Worm Hunt. Glow worms can be spotted from mid to late June onwards in grassy areas round the village and the Butterfly Count can be done during one hour any time in July.

The Woldingham Magazine and Woldingham.com wish to thank all who participated in our Big Butterfly and Glow Worm Counts last year and hope you will join in the hunt again this year. The very warm temperatures last summer were particularly great for our butterflies. Let’s hope this year is just as lovely.
