Late Spring Flowers and Insect Life

Sunday 12th May 2:00 pm

Two months after the early spring walk, we have a better prospect of plentiful insect life and even more flowers. There will be three-cornered leek, bluebells, violets and other lingering spring flowers plus many flowering trees and early summer flowers like mouse-ear hawkweed and pignut in bloom. Any sunshine will bring out orange-tips, small coppers, speckled woods, common blues, and some day-flying moths. We hope to see insects such as cardinal, rose chafer and thick-legged flower ‘popeye’ beetles, ladybirds, shield bugs and host of bees. We may hear singing birds too, some of them summer visitors.
