Mini Safari at Priddy Mineries

Priddy Mineries is a magical place.  Why do so few people get up at 6am on a Sunday morning to watch Scorpion Flies and spiders attacking Five-spot Burnet (Zygaena trifolii) moths, and see beautiful Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary (Boloria selene) butterflies warming up.
