Summer surveys, assessing the species diversity of butterflies and moths across the Quantock Hills.

Led by our great volunteers, butterfly monitoring takes place from April until September. This involves walking a transect – a fixed route around a site – on a weekly basis looking for the different species of butterflies and moths.

All volunteers recieve training and benefit from the fact surveys have to take place in good weather! We are always looking for new members to join the group so please contact the team if you would like to get involved.
