November is an interesting time to visit a woodland as it is still in a state of flux. There are bare trees as well as those with their autumn leaves still intact. Some are stripped of seeds and berries which still hang like christmas decorations from the branches of others. The ground layer has not yet had the frosts required to kill off the ruderal species; so nettles still flush the understorey with green with orange fallen leaves beneath.
Below are a few photographs from the Woodland Trust’s Londonthorpe Wood on Saturday.
