Across to Whitefield Plantation from the edge of the pit

I start the walk along the northern edge of the northern edge of the old gravel pit and look across to Whitefield Plantation on Ibsley Common.

Baby Scots Pine

On the edge of a group of pine trees around a couple of small disused gravel pits near Mount Hill, the next generation of Scots Pine trees grow.

Harry’s attention is attracted – I wonder what by…

Con-trails crossing

My attention is attacted by one plane crossing the con-trail of another. I saw one of the planes, and considering that within a couple of minutes both trails were blown by the winds, the other plane can’t have crossed much before. I do hope there was distance vertically!

The overnight frost has created a delicate layer of ice on the stream in Big Whitemoor Bottom looking like cut glass

Nearly back to the car now, a view over the woods shows layer upon layer of colour and shade in the misty sunshine

High Corner Wood, Nices Hill and a corner of Broomy Inclosure

Sadly not many photos owing to the low light.

A childs boot left on a tree stump

As I return through High Corner Wood I come across this little boot sat on a tree stump, I wonder if the little one that was in it had to hop home!


I'd love to hear from you...
