Seeing the Changes 199

A visitation by a Garden carpet moth (Xanthorhoe fluctata) in Loughor, cavorting amongst the flowering nettles (Urtica dioica) and Cut-leaved cranesbill (Geranium dissectum). Toxic plants were in evidence in Penclacwydd with Hemlock (Conium maculatum) and Bittersweet (Solanum dulcamara) flowers making appearances.

In Bynea, Sea arrow-grass (Triglochin maritima) was much in evidence on the estuary and a foal (Equus caballus) played in a field with its mother.
