After a delay for the start due to a road closure on today only for resurfacing a party of 11 plus a dog headed off to see if the bluebells were out.
Our first obstruction was a hole in the bridge so care was taken to cross over it. This was soon followed by boggy areas which were difficult to avoin even more so when a kissing gate was involved.
Our coffee stop was taken sitting on an available large log. After this we walked through an area that is usually covered in bluebells, this time they were only just making an appearance
As we continued the walk we passed through oil seed rape fields but did spot other flowers along the verges included tulips and several fields with new born lambs in.
In places we encountered more boggy patches most due to the last few days of rain.
