The Forest is looking great at the moment in it’s new cloak of Spring greens.
We often come across Ray Mears style shelters but never a ladder before.
Of course I had to climb it…
Got close enough to photograph this dragonfly basking in the sun on a Hornbeam.
There were a lot around considering it’s still quite early in the year.
A sight I’ve never seen before is this thick layer of Beech blossom carpeting the Forest floor. I suppose it’s a combination of the very dry conditions this Spring (please rain soon, but not this weekend!) and the high winds we’ve had lately.
