More Flowers

Sunday, May 12th 2013

Despite the cold weather, other flowers are beginning to join the Primroses that are in bloom around the reserve.  Blackthorn first appeared along Risedale Beck, then more was noticed on the moor. The area bordering the walk to the bridge over the lake is also turning white with blossom.


Over the last few years sightings of Marsh Marigold have been rare, but this year through the Scrapes several splashes of bright yellow can be seen as these flowers open.
