May 11th 2011

Despite the cloudy windy weather I had day away from the patch to the Wildlife Trust for Berks, Bucks & Oxon Hartslock Nature Reserve of unimproved chalk downland hill overlooking the river Thames well known for its orchids and butterfly’s.
My walk along Thames produced a Club-tailed Dragonfly but there were not many other insects on the wing accept for Red Kites and Buzzard. The orchids were stunning with the odd Lady, plenty of Monkey and many hybrids between the two and well worth another visit in better conditions.
