The wood is remarkably resilient in adverse weather. After this heatwave, the ponds may be low in water but pondlife continues. We may see an early Autumn as the leaves begin to change colour already. Read more about what has been happening in July in my latest blog post. https://bluebellwalk.co.uk/blog

This is our last weekend of the 2018 season. Do come along and support +Cancer Research UK. Remember a little rain brings out the scent of the #bluebells in the wood. Plenty of delicious food and hot drinks await you in the barn too :-)

Just a few days left until we close for another year. The bluebells are still looking good, especially in the more sheltered parts of the wood. (This picture was taken yesterday.)

I have just posted my last weekly update on the website. https://bluebellwalk.co.uk/update-11th-may-2018

The bluebells love the rain. So don't let the weather put you off. Come and breath in the scent and sights of the woods, and afterwards enjoy a hot drink, warming soup, and various snacks and cakes in the Bluebell Barn.

6th April’s first weekly report on how nature is influencing the bluebells in Beatons Wood:

Each Friday I will be taking two photographs from exactly the same place each week, to illustrate how the growth of the bluebells are affected in an undulating wood. One photo taken at the top of Beatons Wood near the entrance, as this faces south tends to be warmer and all plant growth appears more forward. The other photo near the Lower Pond faces north, so one should see a difference between the two sites.

Happy Easter everyone.

I thought you'd like to see the wild daffodils that line the Millennium Avenue at this time of year. Many visitors do not see these at their peak as they start to diminish as the woodland flowers appear.

With less than a week before we open (yes, it's next Saturday 7th April) I'm trying to put my March blog post together at the same time as getting ready for the Bluebell Walk. I'll update you here when the blog is ready or in my newsletter (see the website to join). In the meantime have a lovely Easter weekend. What exciting plans do you have?

See you soon....

Morning all. In my latest blog post https://www.bluebellwalk.co.uk/february-2018 I discuss the effect of the weather on the timing of the bluebells. When do you think the first bluebell will appear?

Also I talk about the marvelous job Stan Evans has done looking after our bird population over the years, and the battle against deer and even wild boar.
