Many speckled wood butterflies today.

  1. Neglected Victorian cemetery to reopen

    Heritage: A Victorian garden cemetery which suffered from neglect and the threat of redevelopment will officially reopen this week following a £5 million rescue and restoration programme.

    The Arnos Vale cemetery in Bristol contains listed buildings and monuments and has become an important refuge for urban wildlife including three species of bat, foxes, a family of badgers, and possibly even roe deer.
