Sallows at Fermyn

From Dave Phillips

I took this picture this week at Bearshanks Wood, near Fermyn, where the sallows are very looking extremely poorly thanks to the "sallow spit" moths infestation. In Fermyn it is just as bad, if not worse thanks to the ride widening that has removed many of the sallows in the area with the highest concentration of emerging purple emperors (we all know where that is).
