Trip to Hoe Grange Quarry, Matlock

19 June 2022

Well this trip was out of our comfort zone being aimed at flowers and butterflies. We chose the wrong day obviously – bitterly cold and very windy. Only Meadow Brown and Small White seen on the wing and five bird species in the quarry area. We did however get Bee, Marsh and Spotted Orchids plus two fantastic balls of tadpoles in the pond.

Well worth a second visit when the weather is nicer and perhaps between end June and beginning of August.
