South Stack Flora

South Stack Flora
The primary reason South Stack is an SSSI is that the whole of the cliff top is a solid carpet of wildflowers dominated by the four species shown in this shot. These are gorse, sea campion and two types of heather (Erica carnea and Calluna vulgaris). The resulting vista is shown in the note.

There are also Silver-studded Blue butterflies on the "Range" - about a mile or so from South Stack. You may have been there after their flight period.

Thanks again Jim. We encountered three species of blue on our walks around the area that day - common, small and silver-studded, but didn't manage many shots. The silver-studdeds were way past their photogenic best!!
