|| Arriving at Whitlingham Woods, looking very bright.
|| This Birch Polypore fungus must have grown after the tree fell.
|| What kinds of leaf are in the "litter" around the Birch log?
|| Searching for trees marked with red paint.
|| Unwanted trees are marked with a red X - NOT a red dot!
| The bonfire was built to cheer us up in the drizzly rain.
|| Using a bowsaw and temporary saw-horse to cut wood for the fire
|| A storm kettle (Kelly kettle) is used to boil drinking water
|| Feeding the Kelly kettle with twigs
|| We are clearing a path for access to a "Low Ropes Course"
|| The stumps of two Sycamores we felled today.
| On one tree we counted annual growth rings on the stump
|| We marked the rings and counted 22, so it was a sapling in 1987
|| Back to Whitlingham Barn Visitor Centre as dusk falls.
