Bringing nature to you


Large blue butterfly boost

The globally endangered large blue butterfly has been successfully reintroduced at Rodborough Common. Large blues were once a common sight on the commons. Butterflies are such sensitive creatures, and with the large blue’s particular requirements they are real barometers for what is happening with our environment and the changing climate. Creating the right conditions for this globally endangered butterfly has been the culmination of years of work by conservationists and the local graziers.⁠
