Westonbirt Bioblitz

We spent a fabulous morning taking part in the Bioblitz at Westonbirt.  Nature experts took groups round the arboretum to see small mammals, butterflies, bees, wildflowers, dragonflies and more.  My pictures include: marbled white, small skipper and comma butterflies; a wood mouse; large red and common blue damselflies; a pyramidal orchid (past its best); a red soldier beetle; male & female meadow grasshoppers; and a garden tiger moth.

Wade and Rock are a UK based couple who love good food and wildlife and love travelling to find it. Wade does most, but not all, of the writing and the photography. Rock shares the eating experience and tells Wade when planned posts fall short on sense or style or taste. In the opinion of Wade (and many of our friends) she is also a fabulous baker. WadeandRockandFood mainly consists of reviews of restaurants and pubs we have recently visited. WadeandRockandWildlife and WadeandRockandPlaces are mostly photoblogs.
