Horseshoe Vetch


No post yesterday (another missed day!) as we were up early and off to our friends' wedding at a lovely venue in Somerset. We returned this evening and it's now late with a WeBS survey beckoning early tomorrow!
This was taken on the same walk that the lizard was spotted on. It's horseshoe vetch, Hippocrepis comosa. It is an important foodplant for the Chalkhill, Adonis and Silver-studded blue butterflies.
