Bluebell woods and Grey Gorse Piercers

Today I visited Rewell Wood and found plenty of bluebells, with stitchwort, red campions, garlic mustard, wild strawberry and bugles. A tawny owl flapped across the woodland and a buzzard cruised overhead. I found plenty of the tiny Grey Gorse Piercer moths on the gorse.
