Ranger’s blog yesterday (Jan.30th)
The park was calm and still chilly today.
In a desolate wintry scene, however, red blossoms were very conspicuous as if they talked about early spring. Those were Red Plum blossoms Prunus mume and Sasanqua Camellia Camellia sasanqua. They are not only beautiful but also profitable for some bird species. For Japanese White-eyes and Blown-eared Bulbuls the nectars of these flowers are their favourites.
