Trench Wood is managed by Worcestershire Wildlife Trust and Butterfly Conservation. As one would expect, in the warmer months of the year, many varieties of butterfly can be seen. Here a peacock butterfly has alighted on a plant. The four eyespots on the wings, resemble the tail feather pattern of the peacock. Their purpose is to frighten off or divert predators.
