Wildflowers & butterflies at this Special Site of Scientific Interest with its own memorial butterfly garden.
There are 2 meadows crammed full with wildflowers and the butterflies and bees will be in force sipping the nectar.
There are lots of contenders here – possibly the pretty red and blue rove beetle Paederus – very, very tiny amounts of its poison have been used to cure chronic ulceration in people. Ladybirds are pretty poisonous (and pretty) and can bleed foul-tasting poisonous brightly coloured blood from their knees.
