Newton wildlife

We had a lovely few days in Newton by the Sea with Bob and Judy. After our trip to St Abbs we stayed around Newton and enjoyed walks to Lower Newton where there was plenty of wildlife and scenery. Bob found a Garden Tiger moth on a path. We saw Dark Green Fritillaries flitting around a meadow which had with hundreds of Pyramidal Orchids. I saw my first Tree Sparrow on a feeder - they use the nest boxes in the garden.
