The birds have cleared the reserve of berries, or so we thought.  Hidden under the leaves a few Holly berries remain.

Larch flowers continue to develop, with their accompanying water droplets.  The tiny soft needles are also beginning to appear.

The weather forecast suggests less cold and a little less rain, so keep your eyes open for the white flowers of Blackthorn.


Wood Sorrel may also open its buds, showing the delicate purple lines across its petals.

In contrast to the pale yellow of Primrose flowers the buttercup yellow of Lesser Celandines should be showing through the winter vegetation.
