Church Stretton 3; Wenlock Edge

Eric by a fine bracket fungus.

Lovely early purple orchids.
Sweet Woodruff, Galium odoratum is one of the Bedstraw family.

The area was dominated by sheep and oilseed rape. Notably absent, compared to Sussex, were pigeons, pheasants, rabbits and badgers sets. Some dead badgers were seen on the roads.
This handsome insect inspected my shirt cuff and lunch during the lunch break. It might be a sawfly, the larvae of which live on ground elder.

Oak catkins.
