Mooch around Prestop Park

Not so much a circular walk as a mooch around. I took footpaths from my house to Prestop Park Wood (the area that my webcam shows) and then wandered around the woods. As part of the National Forest, access is open. Some of the trees here are evergreen some (poplars, silver birch, oak) are not, as is very obvious at this time of the year.

It doesn't feel like spring yet, but last Thursday was one of the sunniest blue-sky days you could imagine in Winter.

More photos from this session are on Flickr

National Forest webcam - Prestop Park Wood

I'm lucky enough to have this view from the back of my house. The wood is Prestop Park Wood, in The National Forest.

I've finally got a webcam running - it's broadcasting a picture every 30s so that you can see the weather in this area and also see some gorgeous sunsets. I'm also compiling some stop-motion video using minutely, hourly and daily images. The first of these is now on Youtube
