Butterfly plan; FARM & COUNTRY.

A NATURE trail to attract butterflies and other wildlife is being created on Anglesey by university students.

Students from Bangor University are helping staff at Pili Palas butterfly centre near Menai Bridge to create the butterfly and wildlife zone.

Edward Harvey, a former student now working at Pili Palas, said: "We have created light open spaces and have put in food plants for caterpillars and butterflies to encourage them to the area.

"We felt it was important that Pili Palas was supporting local wildlife as well as having the tropical butterflies. It is all part of the British Butterfly Conservation Project."

The nature trail will officially open in July.
