The twayblades are showing really well now within a small roped off patch in the woods not far from the Reception Hide. These green orchids are not the most attractive plants in the world, but taking a closer look and they have a rather charming quality about them. Using my imagination, I picture the little flowers as tiny green figures wearing a bonnet or cap on their heads. This is the second year running that I have seen twayblades flowering successfully.

Back in Norwich, I could see one of the peregrines sitting high up on the cathedral spire while I was waiting for a bus home. Then back home, I found a vapourer moth caterpillar feeding on a lime leaf in the shrubbery bed by the wall of my apartment's building facing the road.
