Silver Washed Fritillary 1 By Ann Miles

Bradfield Woods Suffolk

Event info


Bradfield Woods is a woodland National Nature Reserve owned and managed by Suffolk Wildlife Trust. It is situated about 7½ miles southeast of Bury St Edmunds.

To quote their website: Bradfield Woods is one of Britain’s finest ancient woodlands and is a glorious haven for wildlife. Bradfield woods is a coppiced wood  thought to be over 1000 years old. As coppice shoots regenerate, their dense bushy growth provides excellent cover for migrant songbirds such as garden warbler, blackcap and willow warbler. On sunny summer days the sheltered rides create the prefect habitat for butterflies, of which there are 24 species. Of special note are the White Admiral butterfly which can be seen sipping nectar from the flowers on bramble, Silver-washed Fritillaries and Purple hairstreak.
