Wildflowers and insects in abundance

The flowers in the orchard this summer have been spectacular. There has been a lot of various umbellifera along the footpaths through the orchards which have attracted a particularly good range of insects.  All adding to the rich habitat that has developed over the last 9 years since it was planted in 2014. John has been undertaking an ad hoc survey of the invertebrates with some surprising results.
