Common Blue Butterfly at Centenary Field

A beautiful Common blue butterfly has been spotted at the Centenary Field. It seems like our new grassland management plan is helping to increase biodiversity already!

By leaving areas of the grassland uncut and only cutting rotational sections each late Summer, lots of insects have a home throughout the year. Small mammals and birds also benefit from the cover of the long grass and the bounty of insects to eat.

This photo was taken by Julian Selman, who has recently joined the Parish Council and is supporting the Climate and Nature Committee on a multitude of projects to help Frampton’s wildlife.
