Butterfly Heaven

Wonderful 9 mile walk across the Sunny Mendips on Saturday brought out 10 species of butterflies for us the highlight being a Dark Green Fritillary.  Great to see so many butterflies in abundance. The wild flower meadows and grasses are still looking amazing and the heather is starting to come out on Blackdown.  Plenty of wild strawberries and still a few orchids to be seen.
