In the Teign Valley

I spent the day with the colleagues from around Devon yesterday and in the afternoon we had a visit down to Fingle Woods to talk about the woods, their management and our partnership with the Woodland Trust.

WDP2After my meeting I went round to Whiddon Deer Park as I had a few hours to kill before an evening meeting in Chagford. Cattle in the deer park

WDP1The trees in the Deer Park are always amazing – was lucky enough to see a beautiful male redstart – one of the classic species of Dartmoor
