Vipers Bugloss.... Pineapple Mayweed and lots more.....

There are several new species of flora started to appear at the Entrance car park area and obviously these are new introduced flowers from the more recent reclamation works. I am currently photographing several species and will include within the list very soon. Here we have a photograph of the the Vipers Bugloss (Echium vulgare ). It was also nice to see the Pineapple Mayweed as also returned to the site where until now the species had been lost with the reclamation works. The Common Spotted Orchid is now well past its best.
Insects: This morning we had about 5 Meadow Brown Butterflies
Birds: Several Swifts and Swallows hawking, A Bullfinch calling from nearby Yonne Cottage, Willow Warbler single call, pair of alarmed Blackbirds, Robin, Blue Tits
