Week 16, early bluebells

When bluebells bloom in our woods (we have 5 or so ancient woodlands near us) it brings more visitors to see the sights.  Unfortunately, some of the visitors let their dogs loose to trample the flowers, while others walk through the patches to get a better photo, each of which activities can ruin a patch of bluebells for later visitors; but I managed to get to Waresley Wood before too many new paths had been trodden.

Two small people whom I know quite well also enjoyed a walk in the woods.

And I happened upon a practice flying day at Old Warden airfield, near Biggleswade.  It’s the home of the Shuttleworth Collection.
