Big old herd of red deer, I was probably within 25ft of them when I took this video. #deer#deerstalkinguk#hunting#goexploreuk#getoutdoors#rain#ridgelinemonsoon#bushcraft

Bradgate Park has a great many veteran oak (Quercus Robur) trees.  These have a high ecological value towards the end of their lives as they support a great many more species such a saprophytic fungi and invertebrates which in turn support bird and rodent species.  You'll notice that these trees are rather 'stumpy' this is because a lot of these trees date back to at least the 1500's and had their tops cut off in protest by the head gardener to Lady Jane Grey being executed by beheading on the orders of Mary I over rights to the crown. As Bradgate Park was Lady Jane Greys childhood home. #history#getoutdoors#ecology#veterantrees#knowledge#woodland

Doing confined space work all day today so spent the day in the dark as a tunnel rat. Open ended so no need for full BA just had escape sets just in case. #confinedspaces#confinedspacesafety#lovemyjob#adventure
