Wild parsnip

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.
