6 Aug (Sat): Butterfly Walk from Rifle Range to Jelutong

For Nature Society (Singapore) members only

The secondary forest stretch from Rifle Range to Jelutong Tower promises tantalising sightings of many forest butterflies on a good day. We have seen less common butterflies such as the Black Tipped Archduke, Lesser Harlequin, Dark Posy, Chocolate Royal, Banded Yeoman, Five Bar Swordtail, Studded Sergeant and Silver Royal. More frequent encounters have been with equally fascinating butterflies including the Cruiser, Commander, Common Bluebottle, Blue Jay, Spotted Black Crow, Elbowed Pierrot, Rustic, Purple Duke, Fluffy Tit, Branded Imperial, and Yellow Veined Lancer. Bring along a hat, water and wear good walking shoes.

Time: Meet at 9.30 am in the carpark at the end of Rifle Range Road
