I took a quick walk around the farm this afternoon and took some pictures of the Spring flowers that are now coming out. As I set foot outside the door, there were three mallards on the lawn searching for worms after the recent rain.
I then went through the middle of the farm taking in the bluebells and wood anemones in one of our tracts of ancient woodland (Sounders Wood). I then crossed over to Rigg Wood where there are a large number of fallow deer – although with a lot of leaf litter in the wood it is almost impossible to be silent and approach them.
The woodlands are particularly magnificent at this time of year with the anemones just coming off and the bluebells taking over. One of the pictures is of a wild white bluebell.
