Spring!

Sunday, April 18th 2010

The sunshine is bringing everything on here at Foxglove. The buds are breaking on the trees, most noticeably on the Hawthorn, Bird Cherry, Rowan and Elder, which, as you can see, is showing flower buds as well.

Elder

The Wood Anemones are in full swing on the banks of the beck, which is also becoming yellow with Primroses. The flower spikes on the Orchids are lengthening but aren't showing colour yet!

The best sighting of the day definitely goes to the Water Vole seen swimming across the lake in front of the bench looking onto the hide. It's good to know these little mammals have survived this past winter and are venturing out and about.
