Speckled Wood butterfly

We were very lucky with the weather and spent the morning in a part of the Park none of us knew well, following a walk based on Susanna Ramsey’s Family Trail no. 6. We were learning to identify trees by their leaves, and keeping an eye open for the birds, insects and the odd reptile – we did find a tiny lizard under a log! Our walk started and finished in Pen Ponds car park – very handy for ice creams and drinks!
