7:  29 March: Tove Hubbard of YWT writes:  The Yorkshire
Wildlife Trust is looking for volunteers to spend a couple of
hours walking a transect through some of our reserves recording
all the butterflies and day-flying moths. No experience is
necessary as we will be running training courses on 15th March
from 2pm – 5pm and 29th March from 11am – 2pm. The surveys are
carried out once a week between April and September and you
would be part of a rota for the reserve you are surveying.

We are looking for several volunteers at each of these sites:  Brae Pasture
Southerscales and Grass Wood.
(Also: further to the east:  Ripon Loop, Wheldrake Ings,
Littlebeck Wood, Burton Leonard, Ashberry, Staveley,
Bishop Monkton Railway Cutting, Barlow Common,
