Springtime woodland flowers


Mauve Primrose...Widdrington tip


Narrow leaved Lungwort...Woodburn, Stobswood


Wood Anemone...Woodburn, Stobswood



Highland beasties at East Chevington

Had a couple of days off. Yesterday I walked from Hauxley to East Chevington. Quiet but a nice walk on a sunny day. Today I was at Widdrington tip and Stobswood where I heard two Chiffchaffs. Lots of woodland birds singing but a few flowers to look at as well as a few Small tortoiseshell butterflies. I first came across Narrow leaved Lungwort (Pulmonaria angustifolia) in 1982 in Stobswood, a garden escape but a nice colourful plant. It still survives on the edge of Woodburn. The mauve Primroses were growing at the Western edge of Widdrington tip and the Anemone in Woodburn at Stobswood.

The roles are reversed now, Nigel. Not even a sign of Wood Anenome down here.
