The results are spectacular, with not only cornflowers, but also corncockles - both adulterated the flour in the past, and so were swiftly eradicated by agrichemicals, to the extent that we don't see them at all now. I'd seen neither in a field before, and their bright colours with the daisies were superb.
Also in the corn was this Great Burnet - the smaller Salad Burnet is well-known to me but this was a first. So....congratulations to the planners of the Jeskyns Farm park - a little artificial of course, but an indication of what we have lost. And thanks to John Young for the info.
Queendown Warren is one of the jewels in the Kent countryside, and is managed by Kent Wildlife Trust on behalf of PlantLife. Although three target species eluded me, I was pleased with the variety of plants there.
Meadow Clary, which is now only found in 21 places in Britain (including Langdon Cliffs I belately discovered).
There were plenty of Fragrant Orchids, three Bee Orchids and the Pyramidal Orchids are just starting to flower.The sun came out and it became warm enough for butterflies, including the first Meadow Brown of the year (yay!). Common Blues and Brown Argus were plentiful, and one stunning Adonis Blue briefly settled.
