Roundabout flowers, and baby Lapwings..
Back in April I did a trip to Burley Roundabout to record the Cowslips growing there (see here)
now they have dyed back the next set of wild flowers are growing through.
I like doing lists and recording, so I am hoping to go back again in a few weeks.
Here is a list of what I found flowering to day. It's been good to catch up on common flowers and their names that are growing right now.
A little walk down the lane produced some other nice finds.
There were many more flowers to flower, just need some more sun this week and they will be out, yet again it was sunny to day but soooo cold in the wind, it was later on in the day to, so there were no Butterflies or bees flying.
More plants along the road.
In the field that follows the old road I managed to spot a Lapwing with two young feeding amongst the grass.
Plenty of rabbits in the fields enjoying the sun.
More flowers, discovered this plant to day on the grass verge at the park, Winter cress has many names and comes from the Brassicaceae family or Mustard family, they are a right pain to ID, as they are all very similar and all the names depending were you are from get a little mixed up with each other.
Common Winter-cress, Yellow Rocket, Herb Barbara, Yellow Rocket-cress, Winter Rocket, Wound Rocket, Garden Yellow-rocket !
Amongst one patch of Nettles Peacock butterfly caterpillars were spotted.
I'm hoping I've got all the flower names right (let me know if not) and you find some you have spotted before.
Before I go I want you to take a look at Ian's blog if you have not before
