Well it’s absolutely lovely in the woods today. The sun’s shinning in an almost clear sky, the holly tree is laden with berries which the birds are having a lovely time eating. There’s a cloud of mosquitoes haphazardly buzzing above me while the buzzards are riding the thermals in the next field.
Suddenly there’s a cacophony of chirps as the smaller birds crash into the safety of the trees to escape the piercing eyes of the ever searching sparrow hawk. Peace returns as the raptor flaps and glides away into another field.
The peace will soon give way to the excited shouts of the children as the arrive for this mornings forest school session.
