My next port of call was Scallows to see how Spring was progressing here. Trees were bursting into leaf and the two setts here also seem to be active. Carpets of violets have replaced the snowdrops and aconites and a woodpecker was drumming loudly. I also found a few good crops of oyster mushrooms growing on dead trees.
Wanting some cowslip pictures I headed off to nearby Great Tows where I was told there was quite a field full. My information was correct and I secured some pleasing images.
