Today we were pleased to host a botanical walk around Narroways organised by the Bristol Naturalist Society. There were several very experienced botanists including Clive Lovatt and there were 12 of us in all. We slowly wandered across the hill and down into the cutting before exploring The Orchard and Church Field. There were Greater Knapweed flowers and Field Scabious, Wild Carrot, Perforated St John’s Wort and Broad-leaved Willowherb, Common Mellilot and Bladder Campion. There were also Common Blue, Meadow Brown and Gatekeeper butterflies and we saw a soaring Sparrowhawk and hundreds of gulls flying high, presumably after flying ants. People were impressed by the lack of litter on such an urban site.
