Cud Hill

Friday 25th July 2008

Cud Hill, off the B4073 between Upton St Leonards and Painswick, is a beautiful spot to spend an hour or two on a warm, sunny evening. Three male Yellowhammers were singing, and at least five were present in total this evening, plus the resident Kestrel. The scarp is very colourful at this time of year, thanks especially to the Field Scabious, Greater Knapweed and Spear Thistle.

This Small Blood-vein moth was in the house this evening (below):
