Sighting of the month – April!
The sun is shining (intermittently), the birds are busy, the sound of lawnmowers fills the air (bring on ‘no mo May!)… spring has most definitely sprung, at last, bringing with it an abundance of beautiful flowers. Of course, the season is famed for its bluebells but, here in the South East, we like to be a bit controversial so this month’s sighting belongs to the humble but cheerfully stunning primrose.
This photograph doesn’t do this little flower justice and was taken on a trip to see some fantastic volunteers at Clamp Rough and Gallows Grove woods in Surrey. They are planning for some practical activities later in the year, which might encourage more ground flora. We look forward to seeing what happens next there!
