We have been donated a beautiful collection of British butterflies, which we put up in the ground floor of Brighouse over the holidays. The case contains a number of well-known butterflies, such as peacock, red admiral and marbled white, as well as others such as a marsh fritillary, small skipper, white admiral, orange tip and many more! We are in the process of putting up our wider collection of butterflies and dragonflies in surrounding walls, as well as preparing display boards with information about conservation of species.
If any members of the wider community are interested in butterflies, or have particular expertise, we would be delighted to hear from you as we progress with these displays. We are keen to eventually do some data collection of sightings of butterflies at Cheney and will be updating on this in later newsletters.
