Springtime at Ryton Pools Country Park

Spring has come and with it the wonderful sight of bluebells in the ancient woodlands of Warwickshire. A few are in the path of HS2, but most will survive to give pleasure to walkers in the future. Here is a picture of my favourite bluebell wood at Ryton Pools Country Park; though beware – this year it is muddier than usual as a result of all the recent rain. (Crackley wood near Kenilworth is dryer and flatter.) As you can see there was a family of swans at Ryton too and other spring flowers, Primroses, Violets and Wood Anemones. See Ryton Pools Country Park for details.
