down in the woods today

The bluebell display this year is not as dramatic as usual. The cold wet weather after a dry sunny March seems to have confused the plants; some are past their best, some are yet to flower when normally they tend to flower at much the same time. It might get better, we will see. The very heavy rainfall has replenished the old mast pools and ponds. At long last there were plenty of butterflies about.

Happy to say we have great tits nesting in the courtyard of our classroom and we can hear the babies as the parents fly in and out. The nest box was only put up last year.
