The family wanted to go fruit picking at Tibbs farm today .I have been to Tibbs farm on many occasions for a light lunch and the food is mainly produced on site .Because of my knee injury I tend not to go too far from a sit down ,so I said I would scout for some bugs. As you can see the hedgerows have been allowed to grow so I was confident about seeing something. To the left of the shot above was a strawberry nursery, which you can see below :
In the background you could hear the call of the chiff chaff but sadly I couldn’t get a shot .However, I did see quite a few insects .As you can see below some posed but others I will shoot another day. In the distance you can see the beautiful English countryside.
The insects above are Speckled wood butterfly, meadow brown, red soldier beetle, comma butterfly and a honey bee.
This place is really worth a visit and is child and dog friendly ,service and facilities are good.
In the summer you can pick fruit and go on a tractor ride at a charge ,I would give the restaurant 5/5 for what’s on offer .Typically their jam sponge is £3.50 “yummy”. A must visit.
