Another Woodland Walk 30th November 2013

Another walk in our woods - but this time through uncharted territory!

I hadn't been into this part of our little bit of woodland before because it was too steep, too overgrown and too boggy. However, by crawling under a fallen tree trunk I finally managed to get down to the banks of the upper reaches of the Windfall and walked along it
 (well OK, squelched and squished).

I also had a paddle.
And discovered my wellie has a hole in it :-(

A glorious day in Top Field

and into the woods beside the Windfall... 



I was hoping to catch the sun glistening on the water...
didn't work:-(





this is where it started to get muddy

then back up the hill a bit



Where Baz became very interested in the Badger's sett

  2. I took a walk in my woods tonight as well, but it was a much more somber affair since here in the US winter has arrived a little early. We still had to hose down the big white dog covered in mud.

    1. Fortunately Baz is black & shorthaired so has usually dried off by the time we've walked back down the lane home!

Thank you for leaving a comment your interest is very much appreciated! It will be published as soon as possible - depending on whether I am at my computer or walking up the lane, or being chased by the goose or helping mend fences after the pony has broken through YET AGAIN.... :-)
