Spring is Coming

Tuesday, March 30th 2021

Walking around the reserve there are signs that spring is on its way.  Primroses are showing their pale lemon flowers along Risedale Beck.  The area where some of the conifers were cut down is dotted with more Primroses than last year.  We will wait to see what appears as the seasons progress.

Willow has opened its male flowers over the last week or so.  These provide food for any early insects on warm sunny days.

There are numerous stands of Blackthorn across the reserve and each area opens its buds at a slightly different time.  The first flowers appear along Risedale Beck.

Marsh Marigolds are not a common sight but a small clump in the Scrapes is starting to spread.  The butter coloured flowers make an impression amongst the winter foliage.

It is most unusual if Daisies do not make it onto the Observation Board every month of the year.
