|Wood anemones and bluebells in Views Wood|
Because of the cool spring, the last of the wood anemones have hung and are now combining beautifully with the first of the bluebells. Other flowers such as yellow archangel and cuckoo flower are appearing too.
The lovely carpet of wild flowers was animated by little birds - wrens, robins and blue tits - flitting around as they collect food for hungry nestlings. Amongst the gentle spring colours, there's the dazzling flash of an orange tip butterfly's wings.

When we reached Buxted Park, this sunny bank holiday had one more treat for us. The sound of cuckoos, who must have recently arrived from Africa.
