This weekend we had a tour of the New Ferry butterfly park, a urban natural reserve on the former site of a railway goods yard, coal yard and water softening plant. It was nice to see some butterflies, but due to the rainy summer there are a few.
This is the ancestor of the carrot. It has a slightly different root, a creamy colour.
The table used to produce bricks on the site.
A hedgehog footprint, it’s a few decades old.
A spider web with rain drops on it.
Mistletoe on an apple tree. On the left it’s a pretty new mistletoe, on the top right is a 2-3 years old one and on the bottom right there is a 10 years old mistletoe.
This butterflies are made from paper and hand painted. They look amazing, very similar to real butterflies.
