Birds, butterflies and foxgloves at Cocking Down
Just some highlights from a recent walk, loosely along the South Downs Way at Cocking. It's a lovely area of Sussex to go looking for birds, butterflies and plants —with the bonus of the Flint Barn Cafe just by the car park!
A Hobby dashes through
There were swathes of glorious Foxgloves and avian highlights included a lightning-fast Hobby, a singing Tree Pipit, and several Firecrests and Goldcrests singing.
A riot of Foxgloves!
Painted Lady butterflies stole the show when it came to lepidoptera, with several bathing in the evening sun along the track as I headed back.
Goldcrest - always moving!
