Toast the coast

We went for a walk along the coast on Saturday afternoon to Orcombe Point to celebrate the Trust’s 50 Years of its Neptune Coastal campaign. There were lots of people out and about enjoying the sea, the walks and coastal views. In my view its about the most successful and worthwhile thing the NT has ever done. Long may it continue.

We also saw a few beautiful marbled white butterflies – the NT is now turning its attention to bringing wildlife back to our countryside  – lets hope that is as successful as Neptune has been

On Sunday I visited Dawlish Warren National Nature Reserve which is owned and managed by Teignbridge District Council. A fantastic display of marsh helleborine orchids
