The walk on Saturday went well with an intimate group of seven in attendance.I was by far the oldest while the youngest,Lucy was but six.What she lacked in years was more than compensated for with her enthusiasm, knowledge and avid curiosity for all things natural.
Andrew of the Woodland League was also a keen participant and contributor and my thanks goes out to one and all for their participation and contribution,interest and enthusiasm,knowledge and expertise.I,for one am the richer for the experience.
As you can see above nest building has begun on site and not every nest is of this size.
Upturned trees are everywhere in evidence,mostly off-track thankfully, these affording a chance to examine close-up roots,trunks and branches as well as glorious fungi such as the yellow in the photo above.Enjoy the experience.
As next week promises good this is a great time to get out and about at the Rock to see the havoc wreaked by wind and rain and storm of the recent past while affording opportunity to see close up the sap rising and the early Spring.Go for it.Bring the binoculars and a glass for close-ups as well as the phone camera or other.
