Rare Buttercup Found at Onyett’s Field, Warboys

Last modified date

We are delighted to have recently discovered, due to the eagle eyes of a member of the Warboys Climate & Environment Group, that our beautiful green space, Onyett’s field, is home to an unusual type of buttercup usually only seen in ancient woodlands- the Goldilocks Buttercup (Ranunculus auricomus).

These bright flowers are a true gem of nature, reminding us of the beauty and wonder that can be found right on our doorstep.

So, if you decide to go down to the woods today, watch your step in case you see one of these delicate native plants.

You can find out more about how the Council are approaching Biodiversity and the Environment within the Parish, as well as how to join them, on our website;
