Happy Birthday i hear you all cry. Why thank you.
Anyway had a wonder up to Gosforth Park Nature Reserve this morning. The woods were yet again full of bird song. The Nuthatch was calling a different tune. So from never hearing a Nuthatch i have now heard two calls in 48 hours mad or what.
There were a few more people in the park (how dare they) so sightings of the Roe Deer were a bit thin on the ground. Did get this pic though.
There are lots of signs that summer is on the way with flowers starting to bloom and trees starting to blossom. At last eh.
Forget me nots
Grey Willow Salix cinerea Ssp. oleifolia
And something i have never seen before, the seed casing still stuck to the seedling in this case a Sycamore i think
Some canny Fungi as well
Polypore (Bracket Fungi)
So a canny morning nice and warm as well hidden amongst the trees.
