The Woodland Trust has become aware of several companies offering photoshoots at Heartwood Forest in/amongst/with a backdrop of bluebells in the ancient woodland. While all visitors are welcome to come and enjoy the bluebell displays at this time of year, any professional photography is not permitted without written consent – this includes commissioned shoots of people or animals. Please be aware that Heartwood Forest is private land and that no professional photography is authorised without permission from the landowner. Individuals taking photographs for private use are of course permitted to do so – all visitors are asked to stick to designated paths to protect the bluebells and all dogs must be kept on a lead in these areas.

Google Earth have updated their aerial photos of the area around Heartwood. The updated part cuts through the middle of Heartwood Forest – you can still see the car park in its first stage of construction on one side of the line when you zoom in.

The updated footage was taken in October 2016. You can see the arboretum very clearly!

One of the Heartwood volunteers, Brian Legg, was delighted to be offered the opportunity to take some aerial photos of Heartwood Forest recently. These are the fantastic results of his trip:

Here you can see the entrance to Heartwood Forest, with the track leading to the car park. Langley Wood is on the left, with various planted areas around.

Following on from the last blog post, these photos of the hen harrier were taken at Heartwood Forest by Tim Hill on the 30th December 2014.

Tim says, ‘After waiting for three hours the harrier appeared at 4:15 before going to roost at 4:20 – hence the rather noisy photographs shot at 12800 ISO! Still, better than nothing…’
