Forest life

The forest is the perfect place to observe the birds and listen to their song.

The many and varied fungi make fascinating photos and we have included some examples below.

Make sure you have your camera at the ready!

Horses, dogs and other animals roam freely on the roads and around the village area so care is necessary.
