Our response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Situation More details

A request for photographs means time spent in front of the computer.  A search begins to see if what is needed can be found amongst a filing system that needs some attention!   However it is very easy to get sidetracked! 

These Marsh Marigold flowers were open as the sun shone on them in the late spring, last year.

One pond in the Scrapes is host to Bogbean and it is almost totally white in spring, as these beautiful flowers bloom.


Slightly later in the spring parts of the reserve turn blue as the Bluebell flowers bend their heads and open.


Patches of pink in summer show themselves to be Ragged Robin.

A slightly different pink is that of the Foxgloves.


Ah well, back to reality, snow!


And just for information the photograph requested still has not been found - keep looking!
