Beautiful video, however just to highlight the point about acorns; if you want to use them as a food source, please don’t give them to animals without first realising that they can be highly poisonous/fatal to some animals, farming livestock including horses.

You seem to have a lot of leaf damage. Many people are wondering if these dark spots are due to an increase in UV2, some blaming the chem trails being layed on the grounds of protecting us from the former. Any opinion?
