Bradfield Woods

Today was a bright, sunny day so it was ideal to go to Bradfield Woods in the hope of seeing and photographing some butterflies.Bradfield Woods is one of the richest woods in Britain and a National Nature Reserve owned by Suffolk wildlife Trust. The ancient ash stools at the Bradfield woods were created by centuries of coppicing, and are the oldest living things in Suffolk. With over 370 species of flowering plants and around 420 different fungi.



Silver-washed Fritillary

My first ever Purple Hairstreak

My first ever Purple Emperor

These are just a few of the butterflies we saw during our walk around the woods. This was the first time we had taken our 8 year old Granddaughter with us to photograph butterflies so seeing and photographing the Purple Hairstreak and the Purple Emperor was a bonus for us all.
