This beautiful comma butterfly, with its distinctive scallop-edged wings, was spotted this morning by Ranger Sarah. The main breeding and hibernating habitats for comma butterflies are open woodland and wood edges, so you're likely to see this insect on your next walk.

Frost flowers appear on the dead wood of broadleaved trees when temperatures drop but the air is slightly humid. The sap in the stem of the plants expands, causing cracks. Water then draws through the cracks and freezes, creating a frozen “petal” to form. Pic by Ranger Anna

Walked in search of early Autumnal colours - some trees on the turn, with a distinct nip in the air and heavy skies certainly felt like the Fall has started
