We saw a Brimstone butterfly and this Violet Ground Beetle. When it was scurrying around it looked like a blur of purple.
We stumbled across (and almost into) a badger's sett.
There were lots of orchids flowering - the Common Spotted Orchid and Early Purple Orchid. The leaves are almost as pretty as the flowers as they are covered in spots and look almost like animal skins.
