Woodhill Diary

Woodhill Forest has been my preferred local walking area, and it's always changing, almost from week to week. Now that I've got the basics of the Short Loop Track on the site, this page will be devoted to what's current - what's in flower, what's been torn down, what birds are around, what's new from last time, what needs fixing.
