Rory's Wood by mave

Rory's Wood

Today our walk took us round the sailing lake at Paxton Pits Nature Reserve which is only a mile from home. It is a site of Special Scientific Interest and is famous for nightingales, cormorants and gadwalls. We walked through Rory's Wood. I had assumed that Rory had been a volunteer on the reserve but on reading the plaque I found that Rory was a boy who loved visiting the reserve with his family, but died at 4 years of age. It is a lovely memorial.
Nicely captured woodland scene

You must really feel immersed in the wood when you walk this pathway.
