Discover a wild place

 

The woodland that is our wild place sits at the end of the road. It is part of the Bielgrange farm, where we live. We had assumed that it was a comparatively young plantation resulting from some farm diversification in the 1970s / 80s.

It sits directly beside the extensive woodland of the Biel estate and straddles the Biel burn. There are similarities between the two neighbouring woodlands – they have similar species including beech trees of similar girth. So it may be older.
