The woods are a mixture of wild garlic, bluebells and other flowers.
Monty loves going for walks in the woods but he stays strictly on the lead.
Like the quarry it is a wildlife haven. One of the first things we achieved on acquiring the woods was to stop bikers from riding round them. More recently we have done a lot of clearing of dead wood and coppicing.
You may have spotted a black box on one of the trees. These and some wooden ones have been placed on the trees in the hope of attracting nesting dormice.
Dormice live up in trees. The hole on these boxes is on the trunk side for ease of use. So far they have only been used by blue this to make their nests. Still a worthy use!
