The gorges between the chalky headlands are now lush oases. Cold, clear spring water is supplied by Maglevandsfaldet. At the top of the waterfall, the ground is covered by large Solomon’s seals. Further down, the rare giant horsetail grows.
Now, there are good chances of watching the peregrine falcons in action. They have young and are busy hunting. Later, the young will also learn to fly and hunt.
The orchids of Høje Møns spread in the forests and the commons. Høvblege gains a light-blue hue from the Austrian flax and a pink ditto from the esparcet sweet pea.
In July, the large blue flutters around Høvblege. It is in search of a mate and it is busy. The butterfly only has about four days of daylight to mate. It spends most of its life as a caterpillar or chrysalis in the dark depths of an ants’ nest.
