Last time we did this walk, it was raining with a very strong wind!!
Today a bit of drizzle and grey but we weren't doing battle with the wind
Billie glad to be back visiting his homeland and showing Ponders and Fido about..
The wild flowers everywhere are amazing in the Spring...
Thrift - everywhere and really brightened up a dull day..
and then a visit to Fort Grey
Billie sitting atop a car outside his 'original' home.. and a stop for lunch..
Gladiolus growing wild it seems.. we saw a lot of these
Looks like an Arum lily to me.. can't think it's wild and suspect more likely to have been discarded there..
I just love these flowers with their multitude of colours... I don't know what they are but they are glorious..
Not the best photographically but could't resit this wren atop a rock singing it's heart out
Six-spot Burnet I believe..
EDIT: which is more likely to be a narrow-bordered five-spot burnet moth - with thanks to Maurice for this info
We stopped for a cuppa - and this was one of the table 'decorations
and then a short drive back to the Hotel.. a great day despite the grey skies
