Wheal Amelia, Butterfly and A Magpie

Cornwall is scattered with old engine houses, relics of the days when tin and copper were mined here. This one I saw today used to be called Wheal Amelia but as you will see from the plaque there is more to its history than that.

An unusual butterfly landed on the shed roof today. It turns out to be a Wall Brown, Lasiommata Megera.

A Magpie landed on our beautiful sculpture, Fledgling, by Richard Holliday, to wait for its turn at the feeders.DSCN4676
