Wytham Woods in April

Our Easter weekend was very grey until today but this afternoon Wytham's hazel-woods were illuminated:

But there are lots of other flowers blooming, including sweet violets, wood-sorrel, lesser celendine and primroses.

We also saw two hares and some signs of badgers (the paw prints leading into this set, I think).

The sycamores are a refreshing bright green...
and we saw these hopefuls springing up where a silver birch had fallen.

There are lots of lambs in the fields around the wood. Last week we saw a sheep giving birth there, but this one looked a bit more photogenic.
