Butterflies and Reptiles

A short walk round Warren Glen yesterday yielded a pleasing number of species. Comma, Peacock, Speckled Wood, Orange Tip and Brimstone butterflies. On the reptile and amphibian front, Slow worm, Grass Snake, Adder and Palmate Newt, all seen without looking under cover objects.

It was interesting that the Orange Tips and Brimstone were all female.

  1. Interested to see that the adder is not an uncommon sight in the country park. I was spellbound to see a quite large specimen in my garden in Fairlight Place Farm. We also have both swallows and jackdaws nesting on the house.
