Lovely day for a morning stroll

Lovely day for a morning stroll, with highlights: two Grasshopper Warblers ‘reeling’ between Pytchley and Ashlawn Bridges, a young fox at the bottom of the zig-zag path, 30+ Early Purple Orchids in the Station Pools, Beautiful Damoiselle, Four Spotted chasers, Large Red Damselfly, eleven species of butterfly including Brown Argus and Small Heath, and of course loads of emerging wildflowers.
