What a difference a week makes...

This time last week this beautiful blanket of wood anemones was covered by a layer of snow at Sheffield’s Dowey Lumb nature reserve - part of Moss Valley Woodlands, near Dronfield.

But this week the pretty woodland wildflowers were in full bloom.

The site is managed by the Wildlife Trust for Sheffield and Rotherham, and Moss Valley Wildlife Group.

The trust is holding a guided bluebell walk through Moss Valley Woodlands on Saturday, May 18, from 11am until 2pm.

To book a place contact Sheffield Wildlife Trust before Friday, May 17, on 0114 263 4335.
