The Wildflower Walk

A small crowd of about 30 people turned up on Sunday 15th to take part in this walk with Mary and John Breeds. Mary and John set up the Countryside Centre in Braunton and have a wealth of knowledge about wild plants, flowers and wildlife too.

It was a fascinating tour of both the open fields – brimming with buttercups and the more delicate white pignut flowers – and the wooded and scrub areas down by the river.

Looking down on the buttercups:

Not all our photos turned out well, but Martin Hadrill who came along also took his own and sent us these below:
