18th July


More from grassland and woodland at Ards Forest Park.


Dull with showers.

At first you think "what is this caterpillar?", then when you see it on the correct foodplant, the answer is obvious: It's the larva of the Cinnabar moth on Senecio jacobaea - Common Ragwort.



This lichen is Verrucaria maura. It looks like spots of tar near the high water mark.

As we returned through the woodland I spotted this single ripe Wild Strawberry - Fragaria vesca.
