woodlander23.wordpress.com A blog about a man's dream to own a small woodland. "The blog has documented my visits, activities and progress since I purchased it five years ago…Some of the activities covered tree felling and management, camping, cooking, blacksmithing, woodworking, wildlife spotting, shelter building plus lots more.”
coppicingsuz.wordpress.com This blog is a diary of Suz's journey from London based care worker to fully fledged woman of the woods.” A fascinating, hands-on account of that journey, infused with a (self-confessed) outsider’s enthusiasm and wonderment, with some excellent, illustrative and to-the-point photography
woodlandwildflowers.com Although it calls itself a blog, it is more of a reference website – and an admirably comprehensive one at that. “This site [says the home page] is about wild flowers you can find in woodlands. The photographs of the flowers were all taken by me and a lot of them were taken in the Wye valley area in Gloucestershire and Monmouthshire.”
