|Coppiced Hazel in Pondhead|
As we walked from the car park we found Redwings and Stonechat in and around the bushes and small trees and during the walk the best birds seen were Buzzard, Great Spotted Woodpecker and Nuthatches, and a Green Woodpecker heard.
|Hazel - the tiny female flower|
We were too early in the season for much in the way of spring flowers. We admired the male Hazel catkins and careful searching discovered the tiny red female flower (left). Also noted were Round-leaved Water Crowfoot, Butcher's Broom, Hard Fern and Yew.
