Springtime is upon us with new life bursting forth everywhere we look.
Our woodlands are alive to the sound of bird song as they proclaim their
territories and seek a mate. Many woodland plants require lots of daylight
to bloom so they flower before the tree buds burst open and form a dense
canopy above. Look out for lesser celandine, primrose and carpets of wood
anemones and bluebells. Swathes of bluebells aren't only a visual feast but
their perfume can be intoxicating too! In our garden ponds and wetlands, frogs,
toads and newts are spawning as the water temperature rises.
