A gorgeous windy autumnal day for a cuppa in the woods.

Spend few last moments in my backyard and after watching @juliatrotti videos I was inspired. Not as good as I want it to be but love it anyway. πŸ–€πŸ–€
I am so appreciative of my local library for allowing me access to these beautiful books - but I’m very sad I must now relinquish them and return them before I’ve had a chance to read all of them. Brilliant reads, I recommend every one! #bushcraft #trees #outdoors #myfavouritebooks #booksabouttrees #mylibrary #lovelibraries #naturetherapy #forestbathing #outdoorskills #woodlandtrust #raymears #thewisdomoftrees #wildwood #trees #maxadams #bookstoread #weekendreading #escapetothecountry #ilovebooks
Been missing forest so much lately. And I'm so excited for October challenge! πŸŒ²πŸ‚
I think we have mushrooms in every colour of the rainbow in the woods at the moment. These green ones are just so cool! Have a great weekend. β€’ Wander our woods - link in profile

Today I took a leaf out of my friend @heather_lampard ’s book and became a member of the @woodlandtrust ! 🌲🌳 Hopefully with my leaf chart and tree poster in hand I can try my skill at picking out the different trees on our next nature walk πŸ˜‰πŸ‚πŸƒπŸŒΏπŸ€πŸ€πŸ @bristolnaturechannel #gettinngintouchwithnature #gettingintonature #gooddeedthursday #thetreepostersoldittome #plantingatreeeverymonth #woodlandtrust #nature #priceofacupofcoffee #gooddeedoftheday #savingtheplanet #onetreeatatime #feelgooddeed
β–ͺForest encounters - recently spent some time photographing wild Red Squirrels and it was a privilege to watch them in their natural habitat. Red Squirrels are something I've wanted to spend more time studying and do more photography with for a long time and must admit completely fell in love with them after 3 days watching them. More shots to come πŸ‘πŸ» . . . #redsquirrel #wildlifephotography #wildlife #nature #britishwildlife #ukwildlife #ukwildlifeimages #squirrel #red #conservation #animal #countryside #outdoors #nutsaboutsquirrels #rspb #thewildlifetrusts #exclusivewildlife #woodlandtrust #british #woodland #forest #instagood #photooftheday #canon

Willows I planted at school this Spring / Summer. Despite a very dry and hot period immediately after they went in the ground, they’ve all taken! #treeplanting #willowtree #treesforlife #carboncapture #hope #islaprimaryschool #schoolplayground #angus #perthandkinross #woodlandtrust #woodlandtrustscotland #conservation #rewilding #educationoutside #outdooreducation #naturalplayground

Another diseased Ash from today. With the high winds expected in my area over the next couple of days, they may just fell themselves. #ashdieback #forestry #woodlandmanagement #ukforestryinsta #woodlandtrust #bredehighwoods
Voting for #TreeOfTheYear is now open! Now is your chance to vote for your favourite trees in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland as we reveal the shortlists in our Tree of the Year contest (link in bio 🌳) One of England's shortlisted trees is this one, known as Wyndham’s Oak in Dorset. Said to be 1,000 years old with a girth of 9.79 metres, it possesses one of the largest girths of any tree in Dorset. Legend has it, the oak marked the boundary between Selwood Forest and the Forest of Gillingham. So where did it get its name? Well, Judge Hugh Wyndham who purchased the manor of Silton in 1641 used to sit within the tree and smoke his pipe to relax and contemplate. He was the Justice of the Common Pleas in the time of Charles II, which is why the tree is also known as 'Judge's Tree'. . . . #WoodlandTrust #WyndhamOak #Dorest #StiltonOak #AncientTree #AncientOak
πŸ“It’s a grey day here in Sheffield so to lift my spirits (and procrastinate from the joys of grad job applications) I thought I’d share this little cottage that I spotted a few days ago. I love how the dry stone wall really adds to the historical character of this scene and that the leaves and flowers are still radiant and colourful, even as autumn closes in!
I'll be looking out for high fives from as many of my @scouts family as possible at #thepeopleswalkforwildlife on saturday starting in #hydepark from 10am. @chris.packham what a great cause.πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ @gillians_voice πŸ™πŸ™ #skillsforlife #getactive #getoutside #woodlandtrust #wildlife #london #uk #scotland .

Are you taking part in #WildAutumn ? As the weather cools we get some new arrivals to stay with our resident birds, don’t forget to put out some food and water . . . . . #Repost @woodlandtrust with @get_repost ・・・ As the weather cools down Fieldfares will begin to arrive over the next month or so. These colourful blue-grey thrushes will spend most of their time in open countryside, bordered by hedgerows and woodland, looking for grubs and worms. They are very social birds and flock numbers can be anything from a dozen to several hundred strong. If the temperatures drop some of you may be lucky enough to spot one in your garden! They’ll come to look for berries if the ground is frozen or covered in snow.

I’m joining the #peopleswalkforwildlife on Saturday 22/09/18 because I love all life and think all governments should do more to protect native wildlife and their habitats worldwide! #peopleswalkforwildlife #savetheworld #dosomethinggood #showyoucare #chrispackham #wildlifetrustbcn #woodlandtrust #plants #animals #oceans #nature #life #conservation #ukgovernment
#Repost @woodlandtrust with @get_repost ・・・ Think of any fairy tale illustration of elves or goblins sitting on or under a toadstool, and it's most likely the bright red cap of Fly Agaric. This iconic British fungus has a long association with Midwinter and Christmas festivities in central Europe. The modern concept of Santa Claus can be traced back as an amalgamation of several characters of popular European folklore, such as a more pagan Scandinavian house goblin who offered protection from malevolent spirits in return for a feast at midwinter, and the fourth century Byzantine archbishop who became St Nicolas and was renowned for his kindness to children. More recently it has been suggested that the Siberian use of fly agaric may have played a part in the development of the legend of Santa Claus too! (Information sourced from Trees For Life) . . The history behind Fly Agaric is definitely one of the most intriguing as the Woodland Trust have said, being used as inspiration behind many traditional stories as well as modern tales. β€’ β€’ At Mallards, we not only look at the appearance of our bespoke creations but the meaning and significance behind it as well, just like the Fly Agaric. β€’ β€’ #woodlandtrust #flyagaric #britishfungi #mycology #toadstool #folklore #mallards #mallardscollection #bespoke #bespokejewellery #red #white
Thanks to the new Highbury Park tree trail I now know that this luminescent autumn beauty is a Cappadocian maple. It really shines out on this rainy morning! #autumntrees #woodlandtrust #highburyparkbrum #cappadocianmaple #acercappadocicum #acer
I spent a lovely couple of hours on Sunday morning photographing the twisted moss covered oaks at Wistmans Wood in the mist. #dartmoor #nationalpark #nationalparks #devon #wistmanswood #mossmagic #Autumn #TreesofInstagram #Treestagram #SWisBEST #visitengland #BritainsBreathingSpaces #WoodlandTrust #mist #misty
