James and I decided that the other weekend was a good time to start surveying the woodland. So we togged up and off we went with paper, books and camera in hand!!!
We went into the woodland from the furthest corner of big field….
And we worked our way down through the woodland a way noting hazel, and oak trees and an occasional ash. We need to sort out our boundary line in the woodland as the old banked hedged section has fallen into disrepair and there is evidence that sheep have been going back and forth between us and our neighbour.
We have some strangely knarled trees…
The second one looks like there is an old face in the nook!
And we have a lot of holes in the bank!!
We have a glade area almost here which might service brilliantly as a forest school area for the the fire circle etc!!
There were some lovely fungi and some celandines and other ground flora starting to poke through too.
We mapped out this section of woodland carefully and then decided to slither and slide our way down to the stream which is our bottom boundary.
