Herepath Walk - Somerset 15/3/14

The Herepath is a glorious 13.5 mile walk through lovely Somerset countryside just outside Taunton.  It takes in various terrains from forest tracks and woodland to fields. We set out early on what was to become a wonderful sunny day.  Once again the birds were singing and the skies were blue and we saw a total of 5 butterflies Red Admiral, Peacock, Brimstone, Small Tortoishell and plenty of Commas.

Primroses in abundance along the walk

Great to see so many Spring wild flowers making a strong appearance and also attracting butterflies and bees.

                Violets - yes these are white!

Fleabane - one of the earliest Spring flowers to appear

                Toad - met this toad along our path through damp woodlands

Bee on Celandine - great to see so many bees around this Spring

                Red Admiral soaking up the sun

Brimstone on Celandine

Comma - one of many seen today. Surprised to see so many.
