There are several sturdy plants of wild parsnip in Ivybridge station carpark. I haven’t seen it on any of my other regular walks.
There were also lots of butterflies enjoying the ragwort, great willowherb, scabious and knapweed,
and a dingy footman on the underside of a leaf.
Walking back to Moorhaven, there were two winged casualties on the pavement, a beautiful demoiselle and a peacock butterfly.
Two plants I haven’t recorded here yet this summer: teasel and mugwort.
