There are lots of June flowers among the grasses of Barton Fields alongside the Sustrans Cycle Way. Somebody has put in equidistant stakes in the ground as part of a butterfly counting study – the email address is Exeter University.

The area has been looked after by the Abingdon Naturalists’ Society since 1999. Their website says “97% of our lowland native wildflower meadows have disappeared since the 1950’s which has sent many of our wild bee and butterflies dependent upon them into a steep decline.

So we began our native wildflower meadow restoration at Barton Fields in 2009 to aid their recovery.

Nearby, clumps of brambles are in flower, and they too attract a lot of bees

and butterflies.
