Twenty-eight arrived for this afternoon’s five mile walk. We set off from Witley near the church, crossed the A283, headed for Hambledon, passed the church, paused briefly at the top of Hydon’s Ball and then returned to Witley via the golf course and Enton Mill.
Paths were remarkably dry. Bluebells carpeted some woods but had yet to flower in others. Skunk cabbage (an invasive alien) thrived in two boggy areas. This plant is now a prohibited species. It is illegal to sell or distribute it; those who already have it must ensure that it does not spread.
