Soggy but lovely – October work task in Dalby

A bit of a wet one today but we did some trail clearing in advance of Fear in the Forest at the end of the month. Thankfully topped off with a nice hot drink at the cafe courtesy of ranger Paul. Some of us also took a quick trip up to see the new Nissan hut installation by Rachel Whiteread near the Adderstone.

Despite the rain, it was still lovely to see all the Autumn colours coming out.

Nature Words

An interesting read! It’s sad to think that nature words are falling out of use for some children in the UK, and by extension, losing some of that connection too.
