Hallinhag wood, Ullswater

Hallinhag wood is a magical ancient woodland on the south east shore of Ullswater, dominated by oak with an understorey dominated by bryophytes. The latter covers the rocks and the trees and is intermingled with wood sorrel and bilberry, whilst bird song is everywhere and in amongst the willow warblers, blackcaps, wrens and robins I counted at least 8 singing wood warblers, 2 singing pied flycatchers and 10 singing redstarts. What a place, I can't get enough one of the joys of spring.
