In the pasture there were tens of Ringlet I counted between 40-50 over a 500m area. One or two Large Skipper and a couple of small butterflies that I think are Small Heath. (see image 1).
Back up near the car I had a quick glance around the wood but didn't have much except a scabby looking Nuthatch. I did find a single Water Avens in flower in the hedgerow at one corner of the woodland.
Meg's Lake is a fishing lake created by local landowners and has a mown path to it through some rough grassland and a little scrub Hawthorn & Willow. The owners obviously take care of it, as the path is well mown. Part way down I came across a Brown Hare in an adjacent field that came fairly close and just stared at me for a while before ambling off in no particular hurry.
