Fairlight to Hastings

A leisurely, hot  walk on June 21 from Fairlight to Hastings through the Country Park today, a few butterflies about including several Large Skippers, Speckled Yellow Moths and a Grass Snake below Brakey Bank. The highlight was undoubtedly the display of wild flowers in Ecclesbourne Meadow, notably an abundance of Grass Vetchling [Lathyrus nissolia] , its bright pink flowers contrasting with the yellow of buttercups and vetches. Go and see !!

  1. Excellent news about Ecclesbourne Meadow. I’ve had a number of reports about the display of wildflowers in the meadow this year. Looks like the introduction of grazing is starting to pay off.

    Stunning photos!
