All new members who have joined Butterfly Conservation in the last 15 months are invited to a Welcome Event at Manor Farm followed by a guided walk around the reserve managed by our past-chairman Maurice Avent. This well-known SSSI (Special Site of Scientific Interest) is well worth a visit at any time. About 30 species are seen each year.
