First Bluebell 2016

Its been a very wet but mild winter. Much of the woods has been impassably muddy recently but there are signs that things could be getting more spring-like… Mum spotted the first bluebell on the 5th March. A good couple of weeks earlier than normal. Here’s one just coming into flower that we found at the weekend, also a frosty looking robin.
