Ham Common Woods

I've posted a few photographs of Ham Common Woods recently and I'll probably leave it alone for a while now but it is such a great place, particularly at this time of year, that it deserves one last mention.

One of the nicest things about Ham Common Woods is that is has so many trees and so is not dominated by bushes, shrubs or undergrowth. This little cluster of trees has created a clearing for themselves by depriving the ground of light.

Here the undergrowth has managed to get a toe-hold to make a green carpet between the trees but it is not a very thick carpet and is hardly a deterrent to the serious explorer.
