A wild food walk

We had a lovely walk as a family in the wye valley yesterday and my children were able to practice their id skills and foraging. 

A carpet of ramsons
Golden saxifrage, my daughter learned this one last year and I was really impressed that she remembered it.
Lesser celandine roots grubbed up by foraging wild boar, these need cooking before they are edible and they are very tiny. Don't confuse lesser celandine with buttercups!
Some scarlet elf caps, these never made it home the children scoffed them, mud, moss and all.
Following the signs left by the meat course, fallow deer droppings.
There was plenty of wild boar sign too.
 
I'll post again soon to show you what we did with our foraged greens.
