Late summer visitors at Denmark Farm

Red admiral butterflies are still on the wing, and may continue to be seen on mild sunny days  – one was seen at Denmark Farm today near ‘farm pond’ , braving the cooler weather.  Late-flowering species such as ivy and buddleia provide a good source of nectar for butterflies at this time of year, and are a valuable (and colourful) addition to gardens.

Why not have a half-term visit to see a variety of other wildlife, and the autumnal colours at Denmark Farm? Directions can be found at: http://www.shared-earth-trust.org.uk/en/access.htm
