The village of Uphill is separated from its large neighbour, Weston-super-Mare, by a small green belt consisting of a Donkey Field and a tree plantation.
The Donkey Field (aka Bluebell Field) is a patch of parkland with beech or sycamore trees.
There is also a beautiful horse chestnut tree sitting in the middle.
Surrounding the field is a replacement ‘Victorian’ fence. This protects the snowdrops, bluebells, primroses and cowslips from trampling by walkers – and photographers.
I’m not sure why some of the trees are still in captivity.
With the fence in place the wood pigeons are free to potter around the field.
The bluebells are beautiful.
Below the trees is an understory of holly. And although its not Christmas this robin was happy to pose for the camera.
