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.

Peacock butterfly on its favourite plant – the buddleia
A painted lady butterfly

We’ve moved on from the dandelion seed heads – it’s now time for the thistles.
