Spring is well and truly here and there is no better time to get out and about and appreciate the beauty of nature in this time of new life. The gorgeous bright green of the young leaves just bursting from their buds and lit up by the morning sun cheers you up no end! On a morning walk at the Lickeys this morning, as well as the carpets of bluebells starting to flower, I was treated to close up visits from a tree creeper, buzzard and nuthatch too!
It’s rewarding to see the fruits of BTFL’s volunteers’ and funders’ labour too – the BTFL Deutsche Bank hazel coppice in the woods at the Lickey Hills is coming in to leaf and has established and grown really well now. Surrounded by the bluebells, it really is a picture of spring – so get out into the woods and see all this new life for yourselves!
