Harrocks Wood Winter Hiking, Deer Spotting & Fear of Camping Talk

A winter hiking adventure in Harrocks Wood brings with it different opportunities and that’s what I love about hiking in the woodlands in the winter.

The lighting is contrasting, there’s less people about and hence, you can see more wildlife as I did some deer spotting, but above all, it simply feels peaceful and serene. In this video I also talk about the fear of camping. Not my fear, but others fear!
