Farewell to Fairlawn
Sadly, the brambles and grass have been stripped from the verge in Fairlawn Road where most of my invertebrate sightings were made, so that's another wildlife area in Montpelier trashed. Nearby, at the top of St Andrews Road, lots of Euphorbia was growing which I'm sure must be Wood Spurge var robbiae, a garden escape. This has always grown here but I've never before attempted to ID it. Also alongside it was a nice patch of Alexanders and some Lesser Celandine. An Eristalis hoverfly was on the Alexanders. A couple of Long-tailed Tits were feeding in the trees above this floral display.
