I went up to the Celandine area, but the buds were still closed. I did, however, find a few open specimens of Coltsfoot:
Coltsfoot is quite interesting in a couple of ways:
1) The flowers always appear before the leaves
2) The stems have a fine cobwebby covering which tightens and stretches to alter the attitude of the flowerhead and seedhead as the season progresses.
Gorse has also come back into flower:
|Gorse in heavy rain|
|Polypodium with feeding signs|
|Pupation case of micromoth|
Only one micromoth - Psychoides filicivora - has been recorded from Polypody, so I rather suspect this is the beast we have here.
