This is the second blog in my series of lockdown walks, which record my walks each morning in woods in and around my area.
This walk was in Shut Heath Wood, a small wood near Witham, this wood is managed by the Essex wildlife Trust, however there is no off road parking to gain access to it.
I accessed the wood near the fishing lake which is at the west end of the wood, it was early in the morning and I parked near the unmade track which the fishing club use to access their huts etc.
As at this time of the year we were in bluebell season, I noticed that this particular wood had a slightly different foliage mixture to the other woods I have visited recently, as it had numerous ferns mixed in with the bluebell beds as can be seen by the images.
Although small Shut Heath is a they say “very well formed” with some beautiful trees and small hillocks as points of photographic interest.
