Margins, cornfield flowers and butterflies

These wildflowers were in the crop and are visible from Aldcliffe Rd. It will be harvested soon so hurry along if you want to catch a glimpse. Meanwhile 6 of us accompanied Graeme Skelcher in surveying the margins and were pleased that the resowing of the Aldcliffe Rd margin has produced results for the first time this year. We also saw a Comma, Painted Lady, Meadow Brown, Large and Small White butterflies  and a Silver Y moth plus lots of bumblebees.
