Seen in Rowney Woods near Saffron Walden, Essex

The Rosemary Beetles had all disappeared after some strong winds, but they have reappeared now on the lavender

Despite living close to Doctors Pond in Great Dunmow we very rarely see damselflies in the area…indeed, this is only the second time I have seen one in our garden after 18 years of living here.

Blazing sunshine all day – the damselflies were very busy

Spotted this rather colourful caterpillar on a walk around Roxwell, it’s a Mullein Moth Caterpillar
