Hope you all enjoyed the weekend!
Today there was said to be about 7 Large Blue’s fluttering around the site – they just seem to be hiding from me. There is no set hotspot yet, so sitting patiently with binoculars (or a camera with a relatively good zoom) in one place seems to be a good way of spotting them at the moment.
The Thyme is gradually blossoming (with some images below), so please do be careful where you are walking. If you could try to stick to the cattle and sheep tracks, so as not to trample on this very important species along with the orchids that are about, that would be a great help to the Large Blue’s. I have marked out some Orchid’s and areas with a lot of Thyme growing, with logs and sticks, so that you are more aware of what’s around.
Another nag from me, would be to have plenty of water and lots of suncream when visiting, as the site has been reaching around 30ºC-35ºC in places. But that’s enough nagging from me today, just enjoy the site!
