Ruth Worsley, creative community engager and project volunteer Graham Jones go in search of a very rare UK butterfly whose only clue is its eggs.

Ruth is passionate about our local landscapes and their amazing wildlife. She runs projects that engage communities with these special wild spaces, from oral history gathering to interactive guided walks and creative art projects in schools and communities.

‘I employ a variety of ways to connect individuals and communities with and celebrate our wonderful wealth of doorstep heritage.’
