Singer Misty Miller has recorded and produced the song with Jonathan Quarmby, to draw people's attention to the importance of protecting the UK's ancient woodlands, which at this time of year are covered in carpets of bluebells.

The UK has only two per cent ancient woodland cover and is home to over half the world's population of bluebells.

The video, filmed at Heartwood and Langley woods in St Albans by top visual artist Roger Deckker - will also be featured on VisitWoods.org.uk, which holds the largest searchable database of bluebell woods in the world. All proceeds will go to the Woodland Trust.
