A member writes: I had a wonderful walk from Berwick St John across to Norrington, then up the easterly of the two tracks from there onto the Shaftesbury Way. The flowers at the top of the track were really beautiful - knapweed, toadflax, scabious, yarrow - attracting some butterflies but maybe disappointingly few. There's an amazing clump of golden rod on the Shaftesbury Way - legitimately a wild flower (solidago) but this looks so luxuriant it's surely a garden escapee.
The pages now display photos of live moths taken by Andrew Graham. This one, the Puss Moth, looks very soft and cuddly.
