Flowers in West Field

I was in the West Field this morning having a look at the hedge we laid and ‘gapped up’ this winter. Things seem to be coming along fine. It is noticeable just how few flowers there are in the previously heavily fertilised field, unable to compete with the grass. However, it was nice to see a few bluebells coming up in the hedge bottom and toward the northern end of the field there are quite a few cuckoo flowers as well as lots of the inevitable chickweed. I did notice a little common vetch and common mouse ear as well.

Lapwings again in the Flora Field and that very noisy woodpecker in the Wood.
