The Hogweed (Heracleum sphondylium) was in flower in Loughor. In Bynea, Slender thistle (Carduus tenuifloris) and Common sea lavender (Limonium vulgare) were both in bloom. It has been a poor year for butterflies here, thus far, but there was quite a lot of Ringlet (Athantopus hyperanthus) activity today.
