Midger Wood, joint GNS-Bristol Naturalists’ moss meeting (30 March 2008, contributed by Juliet Bailey)

During the course of the meeting as well as recording some 50 mosses, we saw at least six Brimstone butterflies together with early Bluebells and Butterbur and heard the song from many Chiffchaffs.
