I'd kindly been given directions to the weird and wonderful Purple Toothwort at Bowthorpe on the edge of Norwich so it was there we headed first. After finding the right place I spotted them from a distance and closer inspection revealed their true weirdness! A Lesser Whitethroat burst into song there too, my first of the year.
Next we headed for our main location for the day - Natural Surroundings at Glandford. But on the way up the Holt road we got a little distracted and ended up having a rather nice lunch in the cafe in Heydon!
Eventually we got to Natural Surroundings and spent a lovely couple of hours there just mooching about. Obviously we headed for my target sp here first and down by the River Glaven quickly found a few plants of Moschatel, also known as Town Hall Clock because of it having flowers on each face of the flower head. This is a plant I'd been wanting to see for a while so it was a nice moment. Around the place I also identified Stinking Hellebore, Water Avens, Bogbean and Bird Cherry amongst the more common species. Butterflies were represented by Green-veined Whites, Orange Tips, Speckled Wood, Peacock and Small Tortoiseshell.
