Woodland Wonders.

Over the past few days I've spent a bit of time in woodland in both East and West Sussex as this is the time of year when they come alive with wildlife. With these extremely hot days it also gives shade that some other sites do not give. The Silver-washed Fritillaries arrived earlier this year than expected and have graced the woodland in pretty good numbers as well as the White Admirals gliding through the trees. Some surprises have been a couple of Common Toads in the slightly damper parts of the woods as well as some Beautiful Demoiselles. A great time of year to be out in the woods.
