Next some flies on the dung of the White Park cattle at Ringstead Downs. Probably Yellow Dung-flies Scathophaga stercoraria (male and female in second photo).
Finally a plant in the wood at the top of the south bank at Ringstead Downs. We noticed several green plants standing out among the leafless trees. They are Butcher's-broom Ruscus aculeatus, an unusual plant in that its "leaves" are actually flattened stems.
On the north bank we found a few Cowslips in flower and quite a large patch of plants (not in flower) which I identified as Dame's-violet.
