Last flush of Butterflies

It has been extraordinary year for the Ragwort, a blanket covers the reserve, it is not very good for the grazing stock or for the airfield next door, but it certainly proving popular with the butterflies, see photo.

This morning we disturbed a Woodpecker searching for food in the bench seat,it may not last much longer, and about five minutes later it returned to the feeder, see photo.

These cold mornings have enticed a few common lizards out onto the paths for warmth, see photo.
