- Lovely sunny morning & actually reasonably warm for a change. On the Steyning Coombe, 4x Small Heath Butterflies. These are really small & easily mistaken for a moth as they fly by.Early Purple Orchids will be out soon, Twayblades already flowering.Curiously, not a single butterfly seen on the Rifle Range.
A pair of Kestrels flew over, one disturbed from a tree, also a noisy Jay.
On the Rifle Range, mother & offspring doing well! (Life)
Also saw a fox running off with a freshly caught rabbit. (Death). Nature will always find a balance between predators & prey. It’s only us humans who disturb this. Then wildlife becomes ‘vermin’....
