This afternoon I took a couple of hours off of work and headed to Wiltshire Wildlife Trust’s Lower Moor Farm. It was a quiet afternoon. There were few birds flying (apart from a grey heron) and the only birds I saw on the water were a family of mute swans.
I guessed it was just too warm for our avian friends to be putting too much energy into moving around so my attention was drawn to looking at the flowers in bloom. There were so many to look at; some I know and some which are new to me, like the grass vetchling.
But of course if you are looking at the flowers you can’t but help look at the insects too 🙂
