A quick visit to Edford Woods.

As I mentioned in my last post, I stopped off at Edford Woods on the way back from Chew Valley and Blagdon Lakes. I had to get back home for an appointment, so it was just a quick walk around the woods to see if the Daffodils had defied the recent weather and flowered yet. As you'll see, they're beginning to flower, but not in full bloom. No time for much birding on this occasion, so it's Daffs and nothing but Daffs in this post. (-:
About halfway round the walk the path starts running along the Mells Stream. Very often I would see Dippers along this stretch, but I wasn't able to take my time on this occasion. I wasn't aware of disturbing any though.
 I'll hope to come back in about another month when the Bluebells should be the main attraction. My next post is a promised treat for Pix from Pix Under the Oaks! (-:

Lovely post Jenny :-) Though the daffodils are clearly not yet in full flower they still look gorgeous in the spring sunshine, as does that lovely woodland. I'm looking forward to seeing the Bluebells on your next visit :-)

Lovely show of daffs already Jen and a very nice place to walk around.

They are beautiful Jenny and such a cheery sight. There are so few places to see native Daffs these days! It does look like a lovely place to walk and the possibility of Dippers too, just perfect!

Hi David. Yes, I'm tempted to pop back there in another week to see if there's any difference. It would be nice not to have to rush round either! (-:

Hi Roy, it is indeed a lovely walk. The Mell stream adds another dimension to it. I'm lucky to have the place reasonably close to home.

Howdy Pix, me too, there's something bright and optimistic about daffs me thinks. I know you'll love the next post. It's funny too! (-;

Hi Jan, I'll hope to catch up with the Dippers on my next visit, not that I'm likely to get close enough to snap a photo. They're always a thrill to see. (-:
