The next meeting of the Devon Wildlife Trust: Exmouth Local Group has been announced.

It’s at 7.30pm on Monday, November 13 at Glenorchy Church Hall, Exeter Road.

It features an illustrated talk by Richard Fox, head of recording at the Butterfly Conservation, a charity dedicated to saving butterflies, moths and our environment. The talk will give an inside into the secret lives of butterflies.

“Despite hundreds of years of study, fascinating discoveries continue to be made about the lives of even our most familiar butterflies,” says a Devon Wildlife Trust spokesperson. “Presenting examples of recent scientific insights, the talk will reveal surprising aspects of butterfly ecology and behaviour among common species, including the smelly world of cabbage whites, why the Peacock got its spots and where do Painted Ladies go in winter?”

Suggested donation £2.50, including refreshments.

The group meets every second Monday of the month until March at the Glenorchy Church Hall for wildlife talks.
