Rushbeds Wood and Lapland Farm
Great walk with Peter today through Rushbeds Wood and Lapland Farm. The highlights for me were; my first singing Chiffchaffs (Phylloscopus collybita) of the year, a beautiful patch of Opposite-leaved Golden-saxifrage (Chrysosplenium oppositifolium) by a streamside and a single male Brimstone (Gonepteryx rhamni) butterfly. We also spotted two deer - Muntjac (Muntiacus reevesi) – and flowering Primroses (Primula vulgaris) towards the southern edge of the wood.
