Weekday trip by car to Bentley Wood, Hants

Contact Chris Foster: 07779 302347

N.B. Change of date: now Thursday 24th May

Due to unforeseen circumstances, this has been rearranged. However rare butterflies are more probable at this time.

This under-appreciated site on the Hampshire-Wiltshire border is new to BOC, but Chris knows it well and is keen for others to discover it. It offers a superb mix of woodland birds including Tree Pipit (photo), Firecrest and Spotted Flycatcher. Hawfinch is a possibility. Uncommon butterflies and wildflowers should provide added interest.

Meet at at 8.30 a.m. at the main car park (SU258291 / SP51NW nearest) General directions via the Wallops: left soon after joining A30, via East Winterslow towards West Dean: off Dean Lane (west of West Tythersley)
