I found my new local patch. A stunning little SSSI just down the road from my new home.
My first visit there was quite by accident, it was the first place I explored! It was gorgeous, purple willowherb and creamy-white meadowsweet. I strolled the boardwalk admiring this little gem of a find, excited at everything I saw.
My second visit was a few days later, this time it was at golden hour. My goodness was the lighting wonderful! It made the place look totally anew!
A week or so later I visited again, the flowers are fading but the insect life has come out in force. The place is alive with dragonflies, squabbling Speckled Wood and various hungry hoverflies.
