Broadmoor Wood is 'A delightful woodland reserve with a stream and pool on the edge of Birmingham' (taken from WWT Website) and delightful it certainly is! My first and certainly not my last visit was taken this afternoon. The warm sun was shining through the trees onto the bluebells that carpeted the woodland floor, the scent from them was divine! The path is narrow and with the Bluebells alongside and also Greater Stitchwort, Yellow Archangel, Celandine and Wood Anemone it was a pleasurable walk. The pool had a large expanse of Marsh Marigold that looked delightful in the bright sunshine. I will certainly be back to look for Dragonflies here soon. Blackcap and Chiffchaff were seen and certainly heard as there singing resounded around the wood. Other bird species seen/heard were Blue and Great Tits, Blackbird, a lone Canada Goose in the pool and a Great Spotted Woodpecker was heard! Green Longhorn (day moths) were swarming around trees and Speckled Wood and White butterflies were seen often, the Whites did not settle long enough to get an ID.
An extremely pleasant hour was spent in this small but delightful wood......it is truly magical!
