Rowland Wood Butterfly Reserve

The Rowland Wood reserve was purchased by Butterfly Conservation in 2010 to extend the small Park Corner Heath reserve which had become the only known Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary site in the South East England. More habitat was urgently needed to strengthen their population and to encourage dispersal back into other areas.

This is being achieved by creating sunny, flower-rich habitats through widening rides and replacing conifer plantation with broadleaf coppice, open heathland, grassland and bracken areas. By spring 2011, the Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary was already breeding in the new habitat. 

Wildlife highlights: Nightingales, nightjars, dragonflies, damselflies and dormice.
Butterflies: Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary, Grizzled Skipper, White Admiral, Silver-washed Fritillary, Green Hairstreak, Purple Hairstreak.
Moths: Broad-bordered Bee Hawk-moth, Cream Spot Tiger, Red-necked Footman, White-spotted Sable.
Location & access: The reserve lies about 2km south-east of East Hoathly in east Sussex. Turn off the west side of the A22 between East Hoathly and Golden Cross at 'The Thatched Garage' into Park Lane. After about 150m turn right onto a small paved, private road and park in the small road side bays at the first bend - but please do not obstruct any gates. The Rowland Wood reserve entrance gate is on the right.

From the other gate follow the track westwards alongside the ancient beech and hornbeam hedgebank which supports the public footpath, to reach the Park Corner Heath reserve.
