Finally some sunshine after the unrelenting rain, and I’ll take the cold over the wet any day.  The blue skies, low sunshine, and perfect visibility make for some glorious walks through the woods of Stansted at this time of year.  You are also more likely to see deer and bird activity without leaf cover on the trees.

Alongside our resident Highland Cattle, you can find flocks of fieldfares and redwing, feasting on hedgerow berries, while most walks will include a passing buzzard or red kite, circling and catching the sun’s rays.

Make sure to pop in for a sausage roll or brownie after your walk, and share your photos if you get a nice one.
