Woodland Trust and A Year in the Wild

Last week the Guardian posted the finalists from this year's Woodland Trust photography competition. The photos really are beautiful.  The trust is UK leading woodland conservation charity, caring for over 1000 woods, roughly 50,000 acres (20,000) hectares of land. For Australia this sounds tiny, especially since our cattle ranches are typically larger than that. But the biodiversity of these woodlands is phenomenal.

If you love nature documentaries, make sure you check out BBCs A Year in the Wild, a documentary series exploring a year in Britain's most iconic national Parks: Swowdonia, the New Forest, and Cairngorms. Personally I think Snowdownia is one of the most beautiful places on this earth. Time to buy a new DSLR and start photographing the critters in the garden.
