Old Moor - Dearne Valley - RSPB Wetland Centre

We've had a few days off and snatched a quick visit to Old Moor RSPB Wetland Centre.
If you are a regular to my blog you will know that this is one of our favourite haunts. We don't just go for the birds, there is also a lovely cafe serving food every day, a shop and it's a great place to have a good walk.
We were amazed at how many wild flowers had popped up since last time we visited.


 Bluebells always remind me of my Mum. She loves pictures of Bluebell woods.

 I love this area, spied from the garden birds hide.  It is so pretty and the patch of Comfrey in the middle attracts lots of different varieties of bees.  We would all do well to have a patch of this in our gardens.  I have bought some seeds and hope to grow some in the over grown bit at the bottom of ours.
 The garden fork left in the ground made a good perch for the birds flying in and out.
The delicate blossom of the Hawthorne bush looked so beautiful in the little bit of sun that was around.

We really enjoyed this visit.  It felt just that bit more interesting for some reason and the flowers reminded us that Spring has definitely sprung.

We can't wait for Spring Watch tomorrow night on BBC2.
