Join the Friends of Grangewood Park this Sunday evening, July 21, to try and catch a glimpse of the purple hairstreak butterfly so that it can be confirmed that it’s still thriving in the park.
The purple hairstreak is an elusive butterfly that flies in the canopy of oak trees on summer evenings, with the walk organised with the London Wildlife Trust as part of National Parks Week.
This event is free and open to all. There’s no need to book.
Meet at Wharncliffe Lodge gate (on the corner of Grange Road and Wharncliffe Road) at 7pm. The walk should last about an hour, and you may even hear the park’s owl or see the white squirrel.
