The woods are finally waking up to Spring! The Wood Anemones have got going, despite my worries they were developing slowly compared to the Bluebells:
But the Bluebells are on their way out too:
As is the Broom in the wayleave
And a wild Daffodil in Sweep Wood:
The trees are getting going too, the Willow in the wayleave is in flower, with lots of catkins on display:
The Birch trees are quite well into leaf now:
And the Hornbeam is getting started:
Here's the area we coppiced over the winter, which is now looking very green!
The wildlife is busy too, lots of Bumble Bees around:
And at least one of our tame pheasants is still around - they always make this noise when they eat the seed we've left for them:
Looking forward to some more sunny days in the woods soon!
