These photos show our own patch of native woodland, sheltered from the prevailing winds alongside the B869
roadside. 24 Hazel saplings were planted over the Easter weekend to join the mix of Birch, Rowan, Alder etc. and surprisingly, two mature Juniper trees. Amongst the undergowth and mosses is a patch of Wilson’s Filmy Fern, the UK’s smallest. There is much evidence of wildlife use, including a dining area for a Sparrowhawk. We continue to look to plant more trees, but protection against grazing sheep and deer is essential.
