Towards the end of summer insects may be finding it hard to find a source of nectar but at the Woodwalton Fen nature reserve there is a late flowering plant that will provide a good source of nectar, Broad-leaved Ragwort.
The bright yellow flowers of the Broad-leaved Ragwort plant attract insects and butterflies particulary Hoverflies.

The Broad-leaved Ragwort isn’t as prolific as Common Ragwort. Although there is a good showing of this plant it doesn’t spread uncontrollable.
