Children love unearthing all manner of creatures and in summer spotting and identifying butterflies and moths in the bright sunlight is equally good fun.

Here are a few of our residents: Large heath, wall brown, scotch argus, red brimstone, red swardgrass and copper underwing....if you can spot any others let us know and we'll add them to the web site.
