adonis blue on horseshoe vetch
Three flowers now in bloom on the cliffs are SAINFOIN which in french means wholesome hay and is commonly used as fodder for cattle there, NOTTINGHAM CATCHFLY, a campion with slightly sticky stems and WALLFLOWER grows wild on the cliff face.Also flowering now is birds foot trefoil the food plant of common blue butterfly caterpillars,it has many local names my favourite being grannies toe nails.Horseshoe vetch has masses of yellow flowers and is food for the adonis blue caterpillars.
