A walk along the beach

Yellow horned poppy Glaucium flavum
This afternoon we headed off along the beach towards Rustington as there was a report of a Clouded Yellow on the beach yesterday. I found the patch of valerian mentioned but of course the butterfly was long gone. No doubt he had stopped for refuelling after his channel crossing and headed north. It was interesting to see to see the variety of flowers growing in the shingle.
