Around the Reserve

Friday, December 26th 2014

On Tuesday volunteers were out doing an early flower walk.  Gorse, Daisy, Herb Robert, Water Figwort and Blackberry were recorded.

Blackberry

Opposite Leaved Golden Saxifrage is one of the early spring flowers to bloom.  The flower buds could be seen but closer inspection from an intrepid volunteer, the only one in wellies, was needed.  Unfortunately even after a close look not a flower was open.  Soon though?

Other volunteers closley examined one of the ponds for signs of life - frogs?  Again we will have to be a little more patient!
