Tales from the Half-Penny Wood

Postby CommonByNature » Wed Aug 30, 2017 5:54 pm

From now on, I will be dedicating a great deal of time on my CommonByNature blog to detailing the life of the Half-Penny Wood. A local stand of mixed-deciduous woodland that, to me, holds great personal importance as the place where, under the watchful eye of my grandmother, I first discovered my love of the natural world. This is by no means a perfect woodland, rife with invasive species and blighted by human ignorance, yet, to me, remains a site full to the brim with wild allure. I hope to post these site-specific blogs weekly, and the first can be seen below:

Tales from the Half-Penny Wood: aliens and interlopers

Postby CommonByNature » Fri Sep 08, 2017 11:11 am

In my latest blog from the Half-Penny Wood, I take a look at the myriad invasive species thriving within her reaches. Some, like the Grey Squirrel, are familiar; while others - Monkeyflower and Turkey Oak - are not. Though each, in the present day, represents a stable fixture of the wood I have come to know and love.
