A great walk at Wapley Bushes - species galore

We had a fascinating walk this afternoon exploring the meadows and woods at Wapley Bushes Local Nature Reserve. We were pleased to welcome guests from Cabot Group of the Wildlife Trust.

Among the many butterflies we spotted was this magnificent marbled white.

We also encountered a range of other insects such as these burnet moths.

Last chance to see - before the Wapley meadows are cut

The meadows are looking magnificent now, but we have to cut them in a few days for the optimum crop of wild flowers and grasses next year.

So either check the meadows out during the course of this week, or come along on our Sunday afternoon guided walk - 18 July 2 pm at the Shire Way gate.
