Shaldon Ness


A beautiful day on Shaldon Ness this afternoon. First up a handsome Copper Beech on Ness Drive with the sun coming through the leaves.

This one is definitely a contender to house a couple of hammocks. Fairly quiet and easy to hide in, but very leafy so not much view; which is a shame because in winter you can see right along the coast. Then up a tall oak that overlooks the car park in one direction, but in the other direction - open sea! This is fantastic.

Trees at the top of cliffs are a real treat. I was up a different tree on the same headland last week and a helicopter flew past beneath me!

Today, I was waving at paddle-boarders. There's not a lot of cover in this oak...

Really special.
