Important information

As with any other activity, there are hazards in the countryside and everyone taking part in an event has a responsibility (duty of care) for their own safety and that of others. We try hard to ensure that our events present no greater hazard than any other walk in the countryside, but we would encourage anyone planning to attend an event to read and act on the following advice:

• Wear appropriate footwear. If there are unusual requirements these will be noted in the event programme, but stout shoes are a minimum requirement for any walk.

• The leader will brief you on the trip before setting off, with details of any known hazards and advice on what to do in an emergency – please listen carefully.

• By their nature, butterflies are not always to be found next to the path and will offer many opportunities (temptations) to wander off the track. It’s easy to be distracted and to miss potential hazards such as rabbit holes, fallen or hanging branches, barbed wire etc. Beware of wet grass or moss, particularly on sloping ground. Children are welcome at branch events but, if under 16, they must be accompanied by a responsible adult (maximum of two children per adult). If you are bringing children with you, please ensure that the event is within their capability.

• Dogs are normally welcome at branch events, but must be kept under control. Any exceptions are shown in the individual event details.

• If you are uncertain about any aspect of an event or activity, please contact the leader in advance.

Contact details can be found with each event entry.  Do let the leader know if you need, or can offer, a lift.  If you decide to leave early, please tell the event leader.  Please note that persons who take part in these events do so entirely at their own risk and The Suffolk Branch of Butterfly Conservation cannot accept liability for any injuries or losses during the course of an event.
Binoculars, cameras, field guides and notebooks are always useful.  For moth nights bring a torch and eye protection (i.e. polarised sunglasses or wide-brimmed hat).  Remember, most nature reserves do not permit dogs.  Map references are based on the Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 Landranger series and are approximate.  They refer to the rendezvous, not the site.  Anyone is welcome to come along, Branch members or not.
Additional information about the events can be obtained from the leaders or Matt Berry (Tel: 07599 43026).
