Oxted Downs


I cycled up the North Down for 30 minutes and have stopped here to take some liquids and admire the view back down over Oxted.

The precise spot, according to Natural England is called Chipstead Downs. They also advise me to look for chalk-loving flowers (hairy violets, bee, butterfly and pyramidal orchids) chalk grassland butterflies (chalk hill blues, adonis blues and dark green fritillaries) and rare reptiles (adders bask in the sun or on bare patches of ground).

In the past I have seen deer here, but on this occassion I see only insects and rabbits.
