Notes

I went for a look at the wooded area where a Silver-Washed Fritillary has been seen two years running. No violets that I can find, so I don't think it's breeding there. Then on to the remnant of Wale's Woods - 334872 - nothing there except a moth, possibly one of the Wave family, too abraded to identify. BUT: this is old woodland, marked on the 1839 tithe map, as are two clumps of trees at the ends of the Fritillary pool. All this must have been mature woodland then, to be worth mapping, so could be ancient. Wale's Wood seems to be long-abandoned oak coppice, also ash and birch, hawthorn and holly. Definitely worth protecting.
