Home is in the hedgerow

A wander along the field margins at East Holywell, gave me numerous encounters with the new residents in the hedgerows.

What was nothing but barren twigs just 4 weeks ago, is now alive with Whitethroats, Yellowhammers and Greenfinches.

And the Dandelion, persecuted by our culture of tidiness, is a corner stone of the hedgerow ecosystem - feeding the many insects that in turn feed the birds. In a parallel universe, they would surely be coveted blooms?

Bluebell - sometimes they're white!
