Dzintra has been busy at Oswestry Library this month with her butterfly project – and, following on from discussions about the BioBlitz at our last meeting, she has included Old Oswestry Hillfort as a recommended butterfly spotting location!

Next time you’re in the Library, check out her display:

NATURE AT YOUR DOORSTEP

Butterflies and Moths

Hand drawn and hand painted by Dzintra Bernsaida

Through my displays in the library, I like to encourage people to go outside and explore nature.  This time it’s butterflies!

Do you see how colourful they are and how just watching them can cheer you up?  Maybe some of them are in your garden, local park or even our very own Old Oswestry Hillfort.

Just sit quietly and wait to see what will happen. Maybe one of the butterflies will land near you and you can see all their beautiful colours and patterns.  If you can spot some of the butterflies I’ve shown here and say the name to your family and friends you will sound like a cool nature expert!

Butterfly Workshop

Hillfort Creativity Group member Dzintra, from OSMakes, has sent info about an upcoming butterfly workshop she’s holding at Oswestry Library, Sat. 18th May 10-1pm. Contact Oswestry Library (01743 250351) for more information.

The 2018 Old Oswestry Bioblitz – which counted a whole range of species on the hillfort – recorded both Large White and Wall butterflies, both of which are on the Butterfly Conservation Red List of most at-risk British butterflies. You can read the press release for the Bioblitz here.
