Field full of of Snake's Head Fritillaries
This afternoon following Jane's tweet yesterday, Jenny & I travelled down to the A1120 tourist route to Framlingham and called in at the excellent Mickfield SWT reserve where we first saw 4 and 2 Yellowhammers on the ground, they flew up to the hedgerow and then in the field itself were hundred's of Snake's Head Fritillaries. Most were densely concentrated in the middle of the field with about 10 white varieties also present. We were there from 3pm and I had to wait around 20 minutes for the sun to escape the cloud to get some nicely lit shots. Fritillaries, along with Orchids, are my favourite plants and a chance to see a field full of hundreds fully out in bloom couldn't go unrealised. It was a real joy to see so many in one field.
