...and rare Duke of Burgundy butterflies at Heyshott Down.
Retirement doesn't get better than this. What a great day out in West Sussex.
Here is a recently coppiced wood; a haven for butterflies and moths.
Five hours up on the Downs in such scenery and with beautiful butterflies and plants is simply joyous. Be aware that some of these paths are very steep and slippery. Walking boots (and perhaps a pole) are desirable.
Thanks Bob Foreman for your website, which made this day possible for me.
