Thurlbear

Back in July during one of the few sunny days of the summer I visted Somerset Wildlife Trusts reserve at Thurlbear Wood near Taunton with a work experience student to undertake some botanical surveys. The reserve is a wonderful mix of oak/ash woodland and wildflower rich glades.

Although a bit of a distant memory Mid-Summer is a great time of year at the reserves with many flowers such as scabious in their full glory and plenty of burnet moths and marbled whites on the wing.

Here are a few photos of some of the flowers and insects as a pleasant reminder that the summer wasn’t all rain as the weather cools and we head into the autumn.
