A gorgeous field headland just outside Pulham, 7 August 2021

Late on Saturday afternoon I needed to get out and go on a long walk to blow the cobwebs away. I walked a circuit from home via Tivetshall and back from Pulham Garden Centre. Nearing the last section of the walk I stumbled on an area of set-aside beside the footpath that was a delight to behold. An examination revealed Crimson Clover, Alsike Cover, Red Clover, Common Vetch, Fodder Vetch, Cut-leaved Dead Nettle and a curious dark-pink coloured Yarrow which I have never encountered before. Earlier in the walk I'd also found Hoary Ragwort, Hedgerow Cranesbill, Goldenrod and Greater Burdock amongst the more regular late summer plants. Yellowhammers were much in evidence too with some still singing.
