Between the storms

It’s half term and we are adventuring out in the gaps between the downpours.  We are fervently searching for signs of spring!  Some of these photos are taken from my instagram (@TreesofSanctuary) and Twitter (@Peaceinthewood) posts, most are online for the first time.

Major renovations underway up at the badger sett! With cubs being born in February, perhaps the badgers are sprucing up the nursery…
