Ploughman Wood

Many of NOPS Outlaws members have been recently exploring a local ancient woodland. Ploughman Wood is situated near the village of Lambley. It is owned and managed by Notts Wildlife Trust. The wood dates back to the 13th century.

It is a haven for wildlife including many species of birds and small mammals. But at the moment it is the plant life that is attracting interest from photographers. Initially there were bluebells emerging alongside whole banks of wood anemones. Outlaws explored the woods and spent several hours down on their bellies to get the best shots from ground level. As the bluebells fully flower then the wood will transform into a sea of deep-violet blue. So, an excellent location to try out macro photography or just stroll and listen to the birdlife.
