Horsefield and The Dead Wood.

It was a bright and sunny morning when Heather and I set out to walk over the Horsefield to the Dead Wood this morning.  We followed the usual route to get there but then found a winding narrow path that ran through the wood, which in places was still wet.  I fact, looking at the woodland floor, there were signs that the wood had been totally flooded during the rains of the winter.  We noticed that the inside of the wood is amazingly thick and tangled.  How much management has been carried out in the past, it is difficult to know, but certainly it is left very much to its own devices now.
Again large numbers of peacock and small tortoiseshell butterflies were seen.
