Photo: Meadow brown butterfly – one of our commonest grassland butterflies which is on the wing from June – September. The caterpillars feed on a variety of grasses and can be found in gardens, parks, churchyards, which means the ‘mini meadows’ by the car park at HQ, the mountain centre and Craig y Nos are all good places to try and spot one.
