Hurtwood is a woodland in the heart of the Surrey Hills and has to be one of my favourite locations in the area. I want to get to know it better, as I want to explore this area more in the future at different times of the year.

A glorious evening of dappled light and birdsong greets me, most notably the call of a not too distant Cuckoo a welcome sound, one I hear less often these days sadly. I find my way to a group of trees I found on a previous visit to these woods.
