A guided butterfly walk in Sydenham Hill Wood

Please note booking is essential for this event

Join London Wildlife Trust’s Sydenham Hill Wood volunteer Emma Pooley for a guided walk looking at the range of butterflies that can be found in an urban woodland.

Sydenham Hill Wood is a mixture of ancient and secondary woodland with large, sunny glades where butterflies bask, feed and breed in the spring and summer months. We are likely to encounter speckled wood, comma, peacock, red admiral, skippers and whites. This walk is also an opportunity to raise awareness of bees, moths, dragonflies and all the other invertebrates which play such a vital role in the ecosystems we depend on for a healthy environment.

The weather is key in the success of this walk. If there is prolonged rain, thunderstorms or high winds the walk will be postponed to a later date.

Please bring clothing suitable for the conditions (sun hat, sun cream and water if needed) as well as footwear suitable for uneven paths and gentle inclines.

This is a free walk, donations to London Wildlife Trust are welcome.

    1. Dear Clare,

      Apologies, but I did not see your message until today, because it arrived too late on Thursday and I don’t work on Fridays.

      I hope Daniel managed to get back to you and that you were able to book a place on the walk. Unfortunately, you would have only been able to book through him anyway because this was a London Wildlife Trust event, and we were just advertising it for him. If you did go, I hope you enjoyed it.

      Best wishes,
