What we're looking for
Budby South Forest is an intrinsic part of the Sherwood Forest National Nature Reserve that forms part of an historic woodland and heathland landscape. Budby is designated as a SSSI for its important invertebrate populations and special heathland qualities. Already an amazing place for wildlife, we are carrying out vital improvement work to further benefit the specialist heathland creatures here. We're looking for volunteers to help carry out ecological monitoring of our heathland and woodland butterfly species. You'll be working directly with the Site Manager and other volunteers to carry out regular co-ordinated UKBMS surveys. The data you collect across the reserve will contribute to national datasets and give us a valuable insight to the affects of our habitat management and the health of our butterflies.
