Join our Nature Natters talk with Paul Selby from Nether Edge and Sharrow Sustainable Transformation as he chats about our joint initiative to increase the population of the brilliant brimstone butterfly!
The Brimstone butterfly (Gonepteryx rhamni) is one of the heralds of spring, and can be seen in most parts of Sheffield and Rotherham. Despite having simple needs the population size in our area is very small. This can be easily changed, its population can explode in size, simply by planting sufficient numbers of its larval host plant, Common Buckthorn (Rhamnus cathartica).
Paul will describe how you can get involved and how together we can increase the population of the brilliant brimstone butterfly!
