Had a lovely trip to Powerstock Nature Reserve. The Marsh Fritillarys are now out, managed to get some good pictures of them. The grass verges on the way to the nature reserve are fantastic at the moment, there is a wonderful mix of wildflowers; Bluebells, Red Campion, Cow Parsley, Buttercups and Wild Garlic. Saw a Hare crossing the road and also spotted a Weasel (or maybe a Stoat) and plenty of Yellow Hammers flying around along the hedgerows.

Went to Durlston Country Park, saw a few butterflies; two Common Blues, an Orange Tip, two Small Blues, possibly a Clouded Yellow and a two Large Whites.   This butterfly, the Holly Blue, was very obliging when I was taking pictures of it.

Spent a week up North, County Durham. This is a little jewel, the Spring Gentian, at Cow Green Reservoir on a very cold blustery day.
