Spring

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.
