Wildflower & Butterfly Walk

Sunday 10th June 2018

On a beautiful warm sunny afternoon John Vetterlein took sixteen members of both the Public and FoSOC around the Old Southampton Cemetery, showing them the delights of the fauna and flora that only John can locate within two hours!
Unfortunately, though there were butterflies; Painted Lady, Meadow Brown, Common Blue, Speckled Wood and the Cinnabar Moth they would not stay still long enough to be photograph, they much prefer to fly and dance between the trees and flowers.
The following are just a few of the fauna and flora John showed; picture (3) Nippewort (4) Bittersweet (6) Meadow Buttercup (7) Goatsbeard (8) John with Sweet Pea (9) Hogweed (10) Ground Elder (11) Portugal Laurel (12) Heath Bedstraw, Sheep’s Sorrel and Ox-eye Daisy (13) Many flowered Rose & (14) Peach-leaved Bellflower.
Many thanks to John for a very enjoyable afternoon. Next walk will be on 8th July.
