More and more young beech leaves fill the wood by the day. That makes it harder to observe the birds. The sunlight will be able to reach the bluebells for only a few days more. After the weekend, the fairy-tale time will be over. The bluebells that have been flowering for some weeks, start to wither. Bumblebees pollinate the flowering bluebells. There were a lot of beechnuts last autumn, this is clear from the many young seedlings, and also from the many mice tripping through the wood. And these in turn make sure that a lot of owlets can be fed by the tawny owls.
Parking 2, 3 and 8 can be reached by car again this weekend.
