Tony’s Patch bluebells and Honeycrook Burn

A quick morning visit to Tony’s Patch Nature Reserve near Haydon Bridge confirmed that the bluebells were still putting on a good show.  The wild garlic was also doing well giving a white and blue carpet in places.  The large bird cherries were also in full bloom but the toothwort under one of the hazels was over.  It promised to be a good day for butterflies but only an orange tip and a few green-veined whites were to be seen in the reserve.  There were also a healthy number of seven-spot ladybirds scattered around the site although one of them was carrying a rather large drop of water around.
