Gamlingay and Sugley Wood - the Wild Life Trust

I have had two trips over the last few days to  the nature reserve.  It is just outside Gamlingay on the B1040 from Gamlingay to Waresley and can be found OS sheet 153 reference TL 242 535.  Gamlingay wood which is mentioned in the Domesday book,  is estimated to be 450 years old and Sugley Wood is much younger and was purchased by the Trust in 2002.  A few from the camera club met with the intention of capturing a shot of the Fritillary butterfly.  We saw them round the brambles but they never landed long enough to catch a good shot.  There were long-horned beetles, crickets, speckled wood, and Skipper butterflies. Lynne lent me her 67 mm ring so I can use my ring flash so the last shot was a Hoverfly in my hanging basket! There are no adaptor rings to be found in all the main stockists until 29th July.
