Local Wildlife and Butterfly Identification

The Rosamund Community Garden organised an afternoon of wildflower and butterfly identification training amongst the wild meadows of their site last week. Led by Gilliam Elsom, a very knowledgeable local amateur botanist, and with the help of Pewley Down Vineyard, we were able to identify a number of grass and sedge species, chalk meadow flowers and orchids as well as butterflies, caterpillars and a variety of other insects and their hosting plants. This beautiful space packed with micro-ecosystems made for a very educational and successful event.
