It’s glorious against the colour of the autumn leaves at Yarner Wood on Dartmoor.

It’s also a beautiful contrast against the depth of the dark conifers in the plantation at Pullabrook Wood:

It’s a feast for the eyes as well as for the birds.

It’ll bring some much needed food for the oncoming cold winter months.
