TF0527 : Corylus Catkins

taken 7 years ago, near to Hawthorpe, Lincolnshire, Great Britain

Corylus Catkins
Corylus Catkins
Early catkins like this are typical of the various Corylus species, the Hazels.

This is the male inforescence. The female one is a tiny red spike on top of a cone bud. Hazel is monoecious but not self-fertile. There is not another Hazel along this hedgerow, so all this pollen is likely to go to waste.
