1. Trip to Waresley Wood - April 2019

On a beautiful late April morning the Wildlife Group visited Waresley Woods, one of our wonderful Ancient Woodlands. The wood was looking particularly beautiful as the sunlight dappled the woodland floor . We studied Oxlips, an ancient woodland species which does not appear any further to the west. Oxlips are a natural hybrid of Cowslip and Primrose and carry features of both. We also enjoyed the other woodland flora including Bluebell, Wood Anemone, Primrose and Dog's Mercury whilst we listened to various species of birds singing to attract mates and to establish territories. This was truly a morning to remember.
