Rhossili Down

The eastern dip-slope of Rhossili Down has some fantastic bog communities which support an excellent range of plants and insects. Here are a few noted last Saturday, the 18th June:
Staphylinus erythropterus (a rove beetle)
Round-leaved Sundew (Drosera rotundifolia)
amongst Sphagnum mosses
Bog Asphodel (Narthecium ossifragum)
