Looking west from Butser Hill

The fine spring weather has brought on the early downland flowers across Butser Hill. Although a little early for the orchids, the northern and western slopes are now covered in Cowslips. A member of the primula family, and  closely related to the Primrose, they are an important food plant for the sites Duke of Burgundy butterfly population.
