I quite like to get down and close to the flora and fauna of the Forest on our walks, as well as capturing the beautiful landscapes.
There are lots of lovely wild flowers that I like to photograph, and keep a personal record of the ones we encounter
Growing several metres tall, they allow very little lights from penetrating its thick canopy. This has been shown to reduce the numbers of earthworms, birds and plants in a site, leading to a reduction in the biodiversity of the area.
The Forestry Commission are constantly monitoring their growth, and have already removed them from 200 sites, but with them covering an area of 20,000 hectares it is a big project.
