Heart of England Forest

A couple of weeks ago, Mr. Bsag and I drove over into Warwickshire and went for a walk in part of the Heart of England Forest. It’s an amazing project (started by the late Felix Dennis), planting new native trees to join up fragments of ancient woodland across Warwickshire and Worcestershire. It was the first time we had been out for a walk (beyond our immediate neighbourhood) for 6 months, and it was a literal and metaphorical breath of fresh air.

It was a glorious, warm and sunny day, and we took our time, looking at plants, birds and fungi, and enjoying the view. I took some photos (pretty much the first I have taken with my real camera since our visit to Pembrokeshire last September), and I have posted a few here. It turns out that my photographic skills have got rusty in lockdown, so I need to get out more and take more photos!
