Tuesday 21 April

We set off on a dry morning, the sun was trying it's best to show.
Only the two of us again.
When we are on our own we tend to drift from area to area checking for new growth and new plants.

Not a new one but quite a patch of it, with plenty in the area - Wood Sage just leaves at the moment.
Common Dog Violet - we are getting little patches all over the valley.
Red Campion

Hairy Wood Rush
Hairy Wood Rush Flowers
Lily of the Valley - the flowers are not open yet, quite a few plants this year.
Lords & Ladies
With the spotted leaves - these are said to be the most common but around here they are mainly unspotted.
Sycamore Flowers
Meadow Buttercup
Cuckoo Flower
Remains of a kill
Spring Wood
The Castle Tree Stump.
Horse Chestnut Buds.
Oak buds ready to burst.
Tadpoles in the weir channel.
Heading toward home on the path between the river and the Top Lodge.
