In which I pause under trees in the rain at the heart of Hasley Inclosure in the northern New Forest
In which I admire some busy wood ants in the New Forest
In which I find a haunted wood and memories of a woodsman's cottage, and spend some peaceful moments sitting on a bench deep in the forest.
In which I enjoy the first properly sunny day for ages, and go for a walk round lovely Godshill Wood in the New Forest.
In which I find bilberry in Godshill Wood in the New Forest.
In which I reach the top of the forest...Pipers Wait is the highest point in the New Forest, and is included in this lovely circular walk from Eyeworth Pond near Fritham.
In which I search for an old oak in the New Forest and maybe (or maybe don’t) find it.
On a bitingly cold day, I walk vanished paths through the Coppice of Linwood, King's Garn Gutter and Long Beech Inclosure, visiting the Rufus Stone in the New Forest on the way.
