Wildlife in the Garden: Butterflies & Brunch

Sat 12 July 2020

10am-11am, brunch in the Stables Café
11am-1pm, expert guided walk to explore what butterflies, day flying moths and other winged insects are in the garden in June

Adult £17.50

Booking coming soon


Join this expert guided walk exploring butterflies, day flying moths and other winged insects that use Waddesdon’s garden as their habitat.

With the increasing loss of countryside habitat, many of our butterflies and moths have now found refuge in our gardens.

At Waddesdon, the Diamond Jubilee Wood was established as a nature reserve and with its less manicured glades and long grass meadows it is a haven for our local insect and butterfly population. The walk is led and guided by a local butterfly and moth expert and will take in this and other areas at Waddesdon Gardens to track down and look for these delicate insects.

The tour will be full of tips on gardening in a wildlife friendly way as we search for butterflies and moths.

Where to meet: brunch will be served in the Stables Café from 10.15am-11am. Walk starts at 11am from outside the Stables Café
