If you go down to the woods today… January

January’s ‘If you go down to the woods today’…… in just over 50 words.

If you go down to the woods today listen to the ice crunch or the mud squelch underfoot.


Look through the bare branches as zephyrs of Long Tailed Tits boisterously pass by or single Tree Creepers silently climb up tree trunks.

Tiny bluebell shoots are just starting to break through the ground; a sure sign Spring is only a few months away.
