I was not expecting a big butterfly count but was pleased to get 2 Small Copper, 2 Brown Argus, 4 Wall Brown, a Speckled Wood and 2 Clouded Yellow. There were numerous Common Darter and a Migrant Hawker. Field Grasshoppers were hopping and a Flesh Fly sunned itself on a rock. Common Wasps were busy in and out of their nest on the north bank and a Hornet was zooming around the plants (I decided not to try to photograph it as I got stung by one a couple of weeks ago - very painful!)
Plants still in flower included Large Thyme, Common Rock-rose, Common Centaury, Chalk Knapweed, Chalk Eyebright, White Campion, Small Scabious, Selfheal, Lesser Hawkbit, Smooth Hawk's-beard and Germander Speedwell.
Is this Bearded Amanita Amanita ovoida
What is this fungus?
