Why not join in the Big Butterfly Count, either locally or perhaps as a fun activity at Fleet Pond? It runs from the 14th July to the 6th August.

Here are some links to articles on butterflies that can be found at Fleet Pond Nature Reserve:

Here are some photos from the Grand Procession at Fleet Carnival 2017, which took place on Saturday 1st July. The procession theme was ‘Under the Sea’ and you can see that this was imaginatively interpreted by FPS using a Beatles’ ‘Yellow Submarine’ (album from 1969) motif.
