Bear Tree

If you go down to the woods today you're sure of a big surprise....

Bear Tree - photo by Rachael Marshall, Project AssistantThis bear, hiding up a tree on Little Hampden Upper Common, was first spotted by Emma, niece of local resident Geoff Hopwood.

The bear is actually a growth abnormality around an old wound, which is quite common in trees. It is rare, however, for them to take on such an interesting shape!
