Highlights from a recent visit to the only one of the Large Blue re-introduction sites open to the general public. A stunning area of sun-drenched chalk meadow on the side of a steep hill close to Street in Somerset.
Large Blue Butterfly
Female Large Blue oviposting (egg laying) in Wild Thyme
Greater Butterfly Orchid (past its best)
Pyramid Orchid and Meadow Grasshopper
In addition to the Butterfies and plants it’s also a great site for Spotted Flycatchers and the more common warblers.
