An 11-mile hike across the landscape was then enjoyed, starting and finishing at Denbies Hillside, taking in Ranmore Common, Polesden Lacey, Leatherhead, the River Mole to Westhumble and finally back up the hill along the side of the vineyard.
A few highlights:
|Greater Dodder - this rarity was found on two nettle patches, at Leatherhead and Westhumble|
|A family party of Swallows were being fed by their parents along the banks of the river|
|A brief spell of sun saw a patch of brambles come alive with butterflies, including this battered White Admiral|
