Corn growing on the Yorkshire Wolds – week 3

The corn is still green, but it has grown since the last photo on 20th April.   Growing corn is a slow business from planting to harvesting.  The farmer has to watch it every stop of the way.

The whole countryside is lush with green.  It is raining now so that is good for the corn and the grass.

A healthy, lush  countryside looked after by farmers is also a good countryside for our native birds. 

Below are some photographs taken on 4th May and the end one was taken on 20th April.
