Flowers Galore!

Saturday, June 1st 2019

Over 70 flowers were recorded during the monthly flower walk.  Thank you to the volunteers who walked around the reserve recording the flowers.  Each flower has to pass the 'flower test'!  This means that it must be open and in flower.

Wild Garlic along Risedale Beck was showing its white flowers.

May blossom is covering the Hawthorn trees, so hopefully there will be a good crop of berries for the winter migrants.

The stamens begin pink but as they release their pollen change to white and dark grey.

At the far end of the reserve Wood Cranesbill is spreading through the lighly shaded areas of woodland.

  The Dog Daisies (Ox-eye Daisy) are just opening their buds.

Ragged Robin always lives up to its name and appears 'ragged'!
