Author's notes

Flowers that had opened since last round of grazing have now been grazed too. Something takes just the top of the flower, leaving the ovary behind (image 2). A few flowers have been grazed by a case moth. By 1 October all remaining leaves and buds are looking very yellow and are drying out.
