Potton Town Council has produced a new guided walk leaflet, which can be downloaded by clicking here. It is based around the butterflies to be found along the Carthagena Bridleway that runs between Biggleswade Road and Carthagena Road. The area was an aspiration in the Neighbourhood Plan to have it designated a County Wildlife Site for its wildlife value. The walk is encompassed by part of Walk 3 in the Walks in & around Potton leaflet, which will enable you, if you wish, to complete a more circular walk from the town.
We will be promoting the walk throughout June and July as this is the time of year when you might expect to find most species. Some of them are tricky to find and identify, but with a keen eye and giving it plenty of time you could see quite a few species. To help you identify them, download the IRecord Butterflies App to your mobile.
Good luck, have fun and remember the slower you walk the route the more chance you have for seeing things!
