11th July 2018 – Eastville Park

I wan’t going to do a blog for this walk through Eastville Park and along the River Frome to Snuff Mills as there wan’t much bird life at all, but I suppose you need to report your failures too.

The highlight was a grey heron in flight and a couple of butterflies but none of the more exotic butterflies that others are reporting.
