Field Meeting: Anglers to Walton species list

A good turnout for the first meeting of the summer(!) and the group took a steady circular walk from Anglers down to Walton Hall and back pausing to look at the flowers and insects en route and an even longer pause at the golfer’s tea shack :¬) Here is a list of the species noted as we walked round and a picture of the crew at the pit stop.
