Tidenham and the Forest

Saturday 23rd April 2011

On another very war day I spent Saturday morning in the forest with Mark and some superb forest birds including Tree Pipits (Poor's Allotment, photo above), Redstart (Little Kensley/Arboretum car park) Pied Flycatchers (Nagshead), Wood Warblers (Nagshead and Lightmoor) and Firecrests (Yewtreebrake, photo below).

At Poor's Allotment the ground was covered in places with the distinctive funnel-shaped webs of the Labyrinth Spider Agelena labyrinthica:

Also lots of Lousewort Pedicularis sylvatica in flower:
