Castle Combe - more photos

Our trip to West Yatton Down last week took us through the beautiful ByBrook Valley, where banded damoiselles defended their small river bank territories and mayflies did their best to avoid the feeding trout.  In the woodlands hanging on the valley sides the ramsons were in full flower and amongst the limestone grasslands hawthorn is still out, with its musty blooms.


Dingy skipper (!)


  1. Some corking captures as ever Peter but I guess you realise you've labelled your Skipper butterfly incorrectly as to my eyes, it's a Dingy Skipper (Erynnis tages). A grand ole tale of yours as ever, keep it work.

    Best Wishes

  2. Yes you're spot on Had a lapse in concentration - not even sure that there is such a thing!


Have your say...
