Up on the Wetland the Water Crowfoot has just come into flower as well.

This stayed in flower well into the summer last year.

Also on the Wetland there have been quite a few Water Vole sightings this week.   They have been seen swimming around the ponds eating the vegetation.  Lapwings have also been spotted.
