The unveiling of an interpretation panel for the small pearl-bordered fritillary butterfly at Black Plantation (DL13 4HX) on Wednesday the 5th of June. The panel, a legacy from the late Harry Eales*, will be unveiled by Stuart Pudney head of Conservation at Northumbrian Water.
Guests are asked to meet at the main entrance (Satley / Lanchester Road) at 10.30am. From here there will be a short walk through the site for approximately ½ mile, walking boots are advisable as there is often wet ground.
Heart of Durham Project Officer Anne Porter and Dave Liddle from Butterfly Conservation will be on hand to explain the conservation work at Black Plantation, to answer any questions and it is, very much, hoped that some small pearl-bordered fritillary butterflies will be putting in an appearance too.
