There are hundreds, maybe thousands, of snake’s head fritillaries (Fritillaria meleagris) flowering in Simpson’s Field Copse: a stunning and increasingly rare sight.

Snake’s head fritillaries are classified as Vulnerable on the Vascular Plant Red Data List for Great Britain, so tread carefully, please.
