Powerstock nature reserve is brilliant in its variety of habitats and wildlife. Today we took a trip to Powerstock nature reserve to hunt for the Marsh Fritillary butterfly and we found them. They are smaller than I expected. When I have seen pictures of them, they are usually close up pictures so the size of the butterfly (and other creatures) can be deceptive, larger than what they actually are. But although the butterfly is small, it is a beautiful butterfly and Powerstock is one of its stronghold. Dorset Wildlife Trust has been working hard on this reserve to provide the right conditions for this butterfly to thrive.
