    That's a really nice-looking pile of branches! Lucky bunnies!

    Superhaul of branches, j&b Will the leaves separate from the branches when they're dry? Do you routinely carry secateurs in your pocket?

    Tui has just got a pile of Hawthorn hedge prunings from yesterday. Going down well.

    Matt carries secateurs and gloves on every walk, and in his backpack (which goes most places with him) as well as a folding pruning saw (backpack only or specil occasions, like when a willow branch needs felling). Most of his forage is branch-based because it's his head height!

    I tried to forage this afternoon - was planning to mainly get Ash but concerned I might have accidentally got some Elder. is tree Elder toxic to buns - I know they can eat ground elder? Its a confusing one to google so if anyone knows that would be great

    I saw a field full of the most gorgeous caramel & chocolate coloured cows Didn't have camera or phone so need to return for pics

    I have always deliberately not fed Elder, thinking it was toxic. Looking at Medirabbit site, they list it as European Elder and it's on their toxic list. http://www.medirabbit.com/EN/GI_dise...Tox/Tox_en.htm

    If it's any consolation, ours have never tried to eat tree elder when it's been anywhere near them
