Farmland walk

Last sundays farmland walk proved a success. The group walked along the old railway from Cwmdeuddwr past Rhayader Tunnel nature reserve to Noyadd farm and then back along the lanes to the start. 35 species of bird including a nice Common Redstart sat next to a Spotted flycatcher on a barbed wire fence. A few day flying moths, only one butterfly (common blue on the tunnel reserve) and a few bee species, particularly on the wild raspberry. A nice patch of Broad leaved helleborine had yet to come into flower in one damp shady green lane. An extensive plant list was made along the route, including Hedge woundwort (below).
