The Gloucestershire Branch of Butterfly Conservation looks after three butterfly reserves in the county – The Bill Smyllie Reserve, The Masts Reserve and Rough Bank Reserve. The first two adjoin Cleeve Common near Cheltenham and the last is near The Camp, Stroud. It is important that they look after these reserves in a way to maintain and enhance the populations of insects on the sites, as well the local flora, which is so important in the life cycles of these creatures. Their main activities on these reserves involve work parties during the winter months and we are always grateful for help during this time.
