Click the play button and then the first image to listen and look through the features of my walk this week. It’s another local forest and while it may be true that all forests and woodland consist largely of trees, they are also all quite different. One thing was certainly unexpected on this walk and that was the goats! Looking at the sharpness of their horns I decided it would be best not to confront them but to negotiate a more diplomatic route through the trees.
Forest Walk Soundscape
Starting from the lower reaches of the woods on the edge of the Loughor River valley, I climbed through the sunlight and shade to the top of the ridge to get a view across the Welsh landscape towards the Gower Peninsula. The trees creaked in the breeze and the ground was alternately soft and crunchy underfoot with the thick bed of past pine needles and crispy Autumn leaves.
