Due to the lateness of Spring this year the beginning of June brought a magnificent display of bluebells to Credenhill Wood. The presence of bluebells is an indicator of ancient woodland. There has been some concern about Spanish bluebells encroaching on our native woodland English bluebell. I am no horticulturist, but I do believe the flowers in Credenhill Wood to be the native English variety. The flowers are tubular with the ends of the petals curling back, they are mostly on one side of the stem creating the distinctive “droop” and the pollen appears to be creamy yellow.
