Wild flower meadow

Had a fabulous afternoon at Tony Rayner's spectacular wild flower meadow.  Great exploring with two naturalists and wildlife experts, Tony Rayner and Jo Cartmell.

We saw so much: grey partridge, swifts, grass snakes, slow worms (46 in total!!!), red kite, buzzard, field vole, bank vole, lizard, common newt, dragonfly chaser, blue damselfly, red damselfly, four-spotted chaser, red cardinal beetle, soldier beetle and tree bumble bees.  Butterflies and moths included: brimstone, small copper, small yellow underwing, brown argus, common blue, green hairstreak, dingy skipper, speckled wood, peacock, orange footman, cinnabar, carpet moth and much more.
