Wildlife at St.Paul's

common blue butterfly

Some of you may be wondering why a small area of grass has been left unmown at the side of the church. It has been left to provide habitat for all sorts of creatures. I noticed that when I mowed I would often be disturbing moths, grasshoppers and even the occasional frog or toad. This small section has been left to provide a safe refuge and give some species a chance to breed. I have seen several species of moth using the area as well as at least two toads. The highlight for me though has been seeing several common blue butterflies, both male and female, on sevral dates during late July and into August. I really hope that they may have bred here and that we will have more next summer.

Also this year I found a single spike of bee orchid in the church grounds which has probably spread from the rectory grounds where they have been found for the last few years.
