Cullaloe Lunch

Crazy 28 degree weather. Little Grebe juvenile was feeding off the front of the hide. SWT cut the grass recently but failed to notice the 6 foot long grass in front of the hide - not very clever. Did a quick Butterfly count too - 4 Meadow Brown, 5 Ringlet, one Common Blue in 15 min slot. You too can play here:

Wildflowers look great, with lots of Meadowsweet (I think - still getting to grips with umbellifers) coming into flower and a dense swathe of Red Clover, Birdsfoot Trefoil (I think), TuftedVetch, Oxeye Daisy - all filled with butterflies, bees, grasshoppers, spiders ... superb.
