Untitled (Stour Woods), 2013


Stour is a traditional chestnut coppice woodland, near Wrabness, dating back to at least 1675. It was worked as coppice until the 1970s and coppicing has since been resumed by the RSPB, to whom the Woodland Trust has leased the wood. Beside the chestnuts grow oak and the rare wild service tree and beneath, bramble, hazel, birch and aspen thrive.

The day I filmed this I saw a White Admiral, a quite rare butterfly, especially in East Anglia.
