Returning to Rosehall Forest after the gales we were surprised to see so many fallen trees perfectly balanced across the trail. In time the Forestry Commission will decide what will be done with them. The wood from windfall has been used for signage, seating, bridges and the building of the visitor log cabin, while other logs are left for moss and lichen to grow and form new wildlife habitats.

Wishing you all a very happy Tuesday and a wonderful rest of the week!

With love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
