SUFFOLK: Fritillary meadow

19th April 2014

Today was the only day of the year with public access to Fox Fritillary Meadow, a Suffolk Wildlife Trust reserve with the largest concentration of Snake's-head Fritillaries in East Anglia. In fact it was only open for three hours, so Cathy & I headed down promptly for the start of the open day at 14:30. A short walk from the makeshift car park we were into the meadow, resplendent with the nodding chequered heads of Fritillaries. Amongst the standard form there was a smattering of the white form, and several double-headed plants. As we walked round a Skylark sung above and Cathy spotted a Buzzard soaring amongst the clouds. Many thanks to Suffolk Wildlife Trust for allowing access to this site.
