Viper’s-bugloss (Echium vulgare) exists in large numbers on the sunny slope of the trough, amidst the rampion bellflower (Campanula rapunculus). In the forefront, the bird’s foot trefoil (Lotus corniculatus) blooms yellow, attracting wild bees. The sunny bramble not only provides pollen and nectar for various insects, but also provides nesting places for some wild bee species and numerous other groves in the marrowy wood of preceding stems.
The viper’s weevil (Mogulones geographicus) can be commonly found in areas with lots of viper’s bugloss.

The endangered Anthophora aestivalis bee is approaching the annual clary (Salvia viridis) in flight. This species is attracted to labiate leaves. The shortfall is likely to be found in the nesting places. Here, the steep embankment to the biotope offers favorable opportunities for nesting.
South end of the old track. Railway gravel is used as a nesting site by some heat-loving bee species, such as the Anthidium punctatum, yet to be spotted here. The yellow flowering tall hawkweed (Hieracium piloselloides) is also typical on railway ballast.
