Wytham Woods, May 2014

The winter of 2013/14 was very stormy and windy, but was not cold. There were very few frosts. As a result the bluebells were early, and lasted a long time. The first photos were taken on 15th April, and the last shown here on 5th May, when they were in about full bloom.

Wytham Woods is just outside Oxford on Wytham Hill.
It's a scientific laboratory used by the University of Oxford, but although it's managed much of that research
means leaving it in a more natural state than many woods.
If you have a good reason to visit, you should be able to get a permit.
