Spring in the woods

As Spring shifts to Summer, here's a few pics from the last couple of months. Spring started cold, and when it did warm up, everything happened in a hurry - we had a great display of Bluebells:


We did of course have a good carpet of Wood Anemone first:

And shady patches started to appear as the trees overhead came into leaf:


The birds have been busy too, this nesting box we put up has been used:

And right next to it another bird built a nest, under the edge of the roof of our firewood store:

As well as the usual work of cutting logs ready for next winter, I also finally got round to winching out two nearly-dead coppice stumps that have always been in the way when turning the car and trailer round. It wasn't easy, but not a lot can resist a tirfor winch with a pulley and a mattock:



With the holes now filled, getting in and out will be a lot easier:



Now for a summer of camping trips! :-)
