Meadow life

The meadow is looking wonderful at the moment - full of yellow (eg, birds-foot trefoil), purple, and pink hues, patches of lovely wild flowers bursting out. Just take a walk in the early evening and see for yourself the huge variety of butterflies that are around at the moment in all their glory. I also saw a lovely array of burnet moths, beautiful black with red spots. A young fox was also out and about in the early evening when it was still light, no doubt feasting on the many bugs, grubs and small mammals that have found their home among the pile of rocks at the top of the meadow (once considered and eyesore, this area has turned into its own little reserve).
