These photos of Castle Hills were taken in mid October, when several wild flowers were still in bloom, including Buttercup, Cranesbill, Daisies and White Campion.
This photo, taken near the top of the hill, shows a variety of grasses with St Mary's Church tower in the background
A general view of the hill
Daisies among a lovely variety of foliage near the bottom of the hill
A Buttercup. Should Buttercups and Daisies still be out at this time of year?
I think this is a Cranesbill, possibly Dove's-foot Cranesbill?
White Campion growing half-way up the hill
On the same day, I spotted a reddish coloured dragonfly or damselfly whizzing around but not close enough to see what it was, and as it wouldn't settle I was unable to photograph it.
