Section 2: Butterflies
Yew needles are highly toxic to humans and mammals,
but are eaten by the satin beauty moth.
Hear Stephen Fry as the voice of our Yew Tree here:
The pine moth's larvae are left to hibernate and then
continue to grow on the pine tree.
The purple hair-streaked butterfly's caterpillars feed
on the flowers and buds of the oak tree.
Horse Chestnut Tree
The caterpillar of the triangle moth and the leaf
miner moth feed on the horse chestnut's leaves.
The compost which builds up underneath this tree
encourages the growth of flowers, which in turn attract
butterflies, in particular the brown fritillary.
