The Landguard Nature Reserve is blooming again, as our wonderful botanical species come into flower.

From shingle loving Yellow horned-poppies to the bee's favourite of Viper's-bugloss.

We took these pictures on Wednesday 22 June 2022... so how many of these can you spot on your next visit to the Landguard Nature Reserve?

On your visit please be aware that some vegetation in the shingle and grassland is not resistant to trampling - and heavily trodden areas can lose all of their vegetation. Please also stay outside any fenced off areas and view the floral displays from a safe distance.
