Wetlands Walk

Went walking at Newport Wetlands today. Very windy and cloudy as you can see from the pictures, but the rain kept off.

Had trouble taking photos because of the wind.

This is a small tortoiseshell butterfly on bramble.

A cinnabar moth is something I have not seen there before.

Lots of Burnet moths fluttering about. This group were feeding on thistles. So many thistles, you can smell their scent whilst walking round. Great food for the insects and later the birds just love feeding on the seed heads.

The pretty flower of the everlasting pea which is very abundant there.
