Edinburgh: Butterflies of the National Cycle Network

Do you enjoy spotting wildlife when out walking and cycling? Would you like to be able to identify the butterflies you see on your local National Cycle Network route and contribute to national records?

Join us for a training workshop at the Sustrans office in Edinburgh and learn about the butterflies you might see, and common identification features, and then head out onto Route 1 (Roseburn Path) to see what we can find. This is also a great opportunity to take part in the Big Butterfly Count.

People can record butterfly sightings via the Sustrans form on the iRecord website/app.

Want to come along? Booking is required. Email our Network Engagement Coordinator (Volunteering) Laura White on or phone 0131 346 3016.

This event is being run by Sustrans and delivered by a Butterfly Conservation staff member.
