A couple of visitors to the woods found this buried metal object and wondered if it was an unexploded WW2 bomb. I hoped it wasn't but decided to dig it up and see!!!
This is its scale compared to my glove.
I started to clear around it and it got bigger.
Bit of a disappointment - it was a wheel!
Jemma came down to the woods with me today and took some photos of some small wildlife:
This is a caterpillar that looks like a twig on an oak tree trunk
Here, you can just see his face.
And another, or is it a centipede?
And another centi/milli pede.
A colourful slug on some rotting birch bark
This I think is called a harvestman.
It got very wet at lunchtime so I called it a day and came home!
