Local walk in Tudeley Woods

Went to Brakeybank in Tudeley woods with local expert Ian Beavis. There is always so much information to take in. Early, Carder and White-tailed bee seen. A few different crickets and plenty of different plants.

Wasp beetle which I found and think looks good

Burnet Companion moth (Euclidia glyphica)

Plenty of Spotted Orchid in the meadow

Carder bee (Bombus pascuorum)

Green-veined White

Slow worm

Scaly male fern (Dryopteris affinis
at the base it has yellow-brown scales

Speckled bush-cricket (Leptophyes punctatissima)

Dark bush-cricket (Pholidoptera griseoaptera)

Green longhorn moth (Adela viridella)

A enjoyable walk and already looking forward to the next one.  Next blog I go back to Beddington Farmlands, which is one of the first places I went birding all those years ago.
