Wood Anemones

Old Sulehay is worth a visit at any time of the year but the activity now is great. Three species of woodpecker and Nuthatch all very vocal and the display of Wood Anemones is spectacular.

Wood Anemone (Anemone nemorosa)

This is formed by a small gall wasp on the broken stems of bramble. Each galls contains many larvae. They were abundant in just one patch of the wood.
