Small Blue

On Monday, three of us attended a meeting in Dundee with the Small Blue Butterfly Interest Group. The Small Blue is the UK's smallest butterfly and has suffered servere declines in recent decades. However, there are small colonies along the Angus coast in areas where Kidney Vetch grows. Kidney Vetch is the sole food of the Small Blue which is why we planted so many in East Haven last year. Glyn Edwards is to assist us to plant more Kidney Vetch in East Haven on 25 April so if anybody fancies joining us, do let us know. We have more exciting news about the launch of Small Blue week on 27th May 2017 which we will share with you shortly.
