I took a walk around Brush Hill to see the beautiful violet helleborines that grow deep in the shade of the beech trees. Take a look at www.bugmadgirl.blogspot.co.uk

I'm very proud to have a piece of writing included in the new Autumn book by the Wildlife Trust, which is out on the 25th August.

I also had a piece included in Spring, but this time I wrote about the beautiful Chiltern gentian and devil's bit scabious that flower at Yoesden in Autumn, as well as some of the amazing wildlife that can be found there.

We've been hunting for ghost orchids. Critically endangered, they're the rarest of our native wild flowers and considered the holy grail amongst orchid enthusiasts. We found plenty of good indicator species including yellow bird's nests and narrow-lipped helleborines, but did we find the ghost orchids ...

To celebrate the publication of Autumn, I paid a visit to Yoesden today to see if it was as good as I remembered at this time of year. It's such as special place, with Adonis, chalkhill, common and holly blues, as well as brown arguses and painted ladies flying amongst the Chiltern gentian and devil's bit scabious. Truly wonderful!

A look back at the last week of the summer holidays and some of the weird and wonderful things we've found: silver spotted skippers, stinkhorns, violet helleborines, frog orchids, Chiltern gentian and a skull. Take a look at www.bugmadgirl.blogspot.co.uk

It may be 30°C outside, but it still feels like autumn in the Chilterns, with all sorts of great fungi starting to pop up. Take a look at www.bugmadgirl.blogspot.co.uk
