Mist

Saturday, April 5th 2014

Towards the end of the week the wind has slightly increased and the mist has cleared.  (Rain is now forecast!)  However it did give opportunities for photography.  Last Sunday the hides at the lake could not be seen.

Hedges outside the reserve are green as the Hawthorn bursts its buds.  In Foxglove they are a little slower to leaf.  Spiders have yet to be recorded this spring, but the water droplets made the webs visible on this branch.

The male flowers of willow are showing their stamens.  Until the rain and dampness clear there will be no pollen released.

Primroses are now in bloom in several areas of the reserve but even they have their accompanying water droplets.
