Dunkery & Horner Wood NNR - silver washed fritillaries

HEADING out of our campsite near Porlock, undoubtably the highlight of a long woodland walk were the huge silver-washed fritillary butterflies floating around their sun dappled territories, sometimes resting on a sunlit twig and sometimes chasing rivals in mini dog fights.


A river leads the way for much of the walk as you ascend the valley.

The bright sun caught this tree's leaves in a beautiful way:

This time of year foxgloves are at their peak and provide a stunning spectacle framing the view to the coast.


The local campsite was hosting the scouts - they were showing their patriotic sentiments.
