With each day the reserve is 'greening up'! The leaves are opening out on the trees and more and more flowers are appearing every day when the sun shines. The honey bees from the observation hive are very busy and can be heard buzzing through the glass. Outside the bumble bees are enjoying the Blackthorn flowers.


This Daisy was on the front lawn by the Field Centre and the Cuckooflower was by the access road.


This flower is so called because it is in bloom when the Cuckoo arrives. It is also known as Lady's Smock or Milk Maids depending on where you are from.
