Field Trip to Ideford Common

Sunday, June 24, 2018 - 11:00

An exploratory field event around Ideford Common heathland where Silver-studded Blue butterfly has been recorded in the past.

Meet 11.00 at the small car park, grid ref. SX 903 791. Leave the A380 at the Ashcombe Cross junction and take the B3192 Teignmouth road. Take the first right (400 yards from the roundabout) down an unsigned lane. Just as this lane turns sharp left you will see the Ideford Common car park in front of you.
