When I go and play in the forest I always find little snacks, can easily find somewhere cosy to curl up for a nap, if only Katie & Phil would let me and have no problem finding my way home to Flamborough Rigg cottage. I am glad to see that the rangers in Dalby forest are doing their bit to ensure humans have forest skills as good as me.
During May they are holding some fun but useful courses in Dalby Forest, near Thornton-le-Dale, North Yorkshire.
