Apart from the magnificent swallowtail, we saw many other butterfly species, dragonflies, damselflies and too many other insects, spiders, lizards, beetles to begin to mention.
Being summer, bird sightings were hard to come by. Marsh harriers were seen in abundance including ariel acrobatics that involved passing food from the male to the female - amazing!
Everyone seemed to enjoy the day even with the sunburn, tired feet and mozzie bites.
