The Fields Behind The RSSKL (7th May)

Went behind the school fields towards Middle Farm.  On the way I encountered 2 Buzzards (possibly the same bird), 1 Red Kite, occasional Skylarks, 1 Whitethroat (cowering in a hedge) and 3 Stock Doves on the farm.  4-5 Swallows were also flying around the farm buildings but I did not see any attending to a nest.  On the way back through Ordnance Wood I came across an amazing Large Skipper, which landed close to the path and provided an ideal photographic opportunity.

If anyone could ID these plants I would be very grateful
