Wild flowers

Hi Victoria, I was thinking there's always grasses somewhere but I've never lived in a city and maybe they're not everywhere there.

Hawthorn and blackthorn for the Brimstone moth larvae 

We've  got a moth trap running I'm hoping for large numbers and lots of species.

 

Help with identifying plants in school wildlife garden

I think the last is some sort of maple but the leaves look rather large for field maple and the wrong shape for sycamore or Norway maple.

What did you think the hazel was Stipa? I can't see the bark, twigs or developing nuts so could be wrong.

Can you help identify these plants please?

Bracken at the top

I think Hazel next, A pic of the bark would confirm (or not)

In the last pic, is that a child or adult hand. Just trying to get scale. And pic of the bark and twigs would help

You're not worrying too much MM

We should all worry a bit more and make a big effort to encourage the insects and reduce the insecticides

Can you help identify these plants please?

It's the larvae that need specific food plants.

Nectar gatherers like anything with a good supply of nectar

Oh yes. They do as they please,  we can't influence them.

I'm happy with what turns up

That's very satisfying WG. I'm sure more will turn up soon. Along with the butterflies.

Today for the first time in years I saw small tortoiseshell investigating the nettles.

They're along our boundary and  so much at risk from the farmer and his killing sprays
