We usually have our monthly team meeting based at Fyne Court but as it’s the Large Blue season, we thought it would be good to vary the site a bit and head down to Collard Hill.
A lovely walk across Collard was had by all. For some, the site and project was new to them so it was a great chance to test my knowledge about the Large Blue and tell all what I have learnt the past couple of years.
It was pretty chilly to be honest and got a little gusty by the time we left so I am not surprised the Large Blues didn’t make an appearance for us. Two speckled woods and a small heath did however show themselves along the bottom of the Eastern Glade, (See map of Collard to get an idea of where I mean.)
The horses were on fine form and I watched them play in the top field for a bit; rolling around in the grass then galloping off at full pelt it was great to watch them have fun!
