Although the timing is difficult and a lot will depend on the weather, we have an opportunity to visit Tresellern Marsh on the eastern side of Bodmin moor to see the display of orchids that the farmer, Maurice Hoskin is so justly proud of. This will be a good time to check for butterflies, especially the Marsh Fritillary, one of the key species in the new 'All the Moor Butterflies' (Butterfly Conservation) project and not too late to look out for Small Pearl-borders. 

There should be lots of other plants in flower and insects and birds. We may even hear the cuckoo!
