Look out for bluebells which are just starting to flower in our local woodland. Soon we should have the great carpets of blue on the woodland floor which is one of the spectacular sights of springtime. Bluebells thrive in ancient woodland where they are left undisturbed.
We enjoy the spectacle of overwintering birds taking advantage our relatively mild climate but it will soon be time for them to leave. Today we had fine views of 100 Bewick swans and 146 Whitefront Geese on the Dumbles at Slimbridge together with lapwing dunlin and golden plover.
There is much to enjoy in winter!
