petits bois

petitBois

 

Surrounding Lens there are a series of small woods, young and old, my favourite of which are those on the outskirts of Aix-Noulette.  Here, the variation of dense forest and open farmland has led to a wide variation of wildlife (birds, insects, voles, and so on) and so I have spent a few mornings this week rising early and exploring its many paths through its undergrowth.  Closer to the city, the woods take the form of smaller “zones refuges”, though there are many, just the same, and serving to remind one of what the land must have looked like before it was built upon.
