Wildflower Walk

Wednesday, April 30th 2014

On the last Wednesday of each month volunteers complete a flower survey for us. With the recent warm weather, buds have been bursting and flowers can be seen in bloom across the reserve. The first of the Early Purple Orchids were seen earlier in the week, with many more leaves found today.

Fifty species of flower were recorded on the walk; flower guides came in useful to confirm several of our findings!

The areas along Risedale Beck, underneath the Hazel coppice, are almost in full bloom with Primrose, Greater Stitchwort and Bluebells all now showing beautifully.

Thank you to everyone who helped with this survey, if the sun keeps shining it could be a very good year for wildflowers here at Foxglove!
