It is worth the while to come to the forest on any sunny day, to enjoy the awakening spring. The wild daffodils are in bloom. More flowering wood anemones emerge every day. The bluebells still need some warm days to start to flower. In the edges of the wood, colstfoot, blackthorn, cornelian cherry and willow are starting to blossom. The pollen of the male willow catkins are an ideal food source for common brimstone and bumblebees.
