Queens Award for Voluntary Service


On Tuesday I saw a Peacock butterfly on the Fauna footpath, near the Cromwell Road end. It had obviously just emerged and was drying its wings in the sun. Today, Friday, I went to talk to the ploughman while Flora Field was being ploughed (it is scheduled to have the seed, wheat, drilled this evening). On the way back I saw two painted ladies mating on the wildflower strip next to Lower Sowerholme.

Spring has definitely sprung now and I am looking forward to seeing lapwing and oyster catchers displaying over the ploughed field, as they did last year.
