Day 19 of 30 Days Wild was a walk around the woods.
I write a 50 word account about my local woods each month for our Parish website
If you go down to the woods today two plants are very obvious. Firstly the non-native Himalayan Balsam, one of the UK’s most invasive plants spreading very rapidly and growing 3m tall. In contrast the native Honeysuckle, found climbing up and around trees and scrubs. Honeysuckle flowers attracts moths, butterflies and insects, the berries attract thrushes and bullfinches.
