Primrose and Blackthorn

As with Birds and Butterflies, we want species as the Topic; add date and site (including grid ref if possible) in the message section. If you saw one earlier - use the reply function. I guess we are looking for actual open blooms rather than simply the plants.

Primrose and Blackthorn

Amended walk plan due to spits of rain and no waterproof on! Abandoned Roddlesworth or Brinscall woods and decided just to do the shorter Withnell nature trail instead and glad I did. Primroses and Blackthorn out. Interestingly no sign of flowers on the very early Marsh Marigold of last year (January) though leaves visible. These plus at least 2 Bullfinch in a mixed flock of noisy finches and tits made me feel spring is on the way!
