The Devil's Kneading Trough is the name both of a steep dry valley above Wye, and of a restaurant with views over the same. I'm pleased to report that we made the most of both of them, with a tasty meal of Nile Perch* with a cracking Puilly-Loché white.
A post-prandial stroll and then doze on the herb-rich grass of the downs provided brief sightings of Dingy Skippers
and then more prolonged views of more relaxed Green-Letter Hairstreaks.
We didn't stray far from the main paths, so only a few Early Purple Orchids were seen.
* Nile Perch tastes very good, but the tale of its introduction in Lake Victoria would ruin your appetite.
