Ancient Woodlands

By LynneJoyce  
I was delighted to learn from Countryfile on Sunday that the woodland where I walk the boys every morning is Ancient Woodland as evidenced by some of the plants that grow there. So I decided to celebrate the fact that we are privileged to tread such hallowed ground by posting images of some of the flora.

The key species in identifying Ancient Woodland are Wood anemone, scientific name Anemone nemorosa and Wood Sorrel a.k.a. Fairy Bells, Wood Sour, Cuckoo's Meat, scientific name Oxalis acetosella.

I have included other species that populate the area, giving their names if I know them, plus a couple of pictures of the area. If anyone can identify the one I haven't yet been able to I/D I would be grateful if you could let me know.

As ever the exif applies only to the first image. The rest were taken with the Canon and the Panasonic.

Thank you for viewing and I hope that you enjoy at least some of these images.

A lovely collection here, all very delightful 👍
After watching last Sunday's Countryfile, hope you're keeping a good eye on your dogs, seems so many are getting stolen, and it's quite a lucrative business too 😳
