We’ve recently had a couple of cancellations on this year’s Journeyman courses, taking place at the end of August. The Journeyman is Woodlore’s advanced-level Bushcraft course that takes place in Scotland, which people can attend once they have passed the Woodlore Fundamental Bushcraft course.
Mark and Lucy Hotson, long time customers and friends of Woodlore, recently sent in this fantastic picture from their holiday to Dorset:
Set on a beautiful stretch of beach, it shows their Ray Mears Super Tarp pitched over their upturned canoe, providing a bit of much-needed shelter from the sun. Nice touch with the cooking tripod too!
Here in the UK on business, Davey visited Woodlore for a couple of days to talk hunting, look at some new clothing ideas and, most importantly, pose for a manly picture for the blog.
For what seemed like the first time in years, students were lucky enough to have the sun shining over them while pitching their tarps, learning fire-lighting techniques, cooking over the campfire and building their leaf shelters.
The following article was kindly written by Woodlore field staff member Sarah Day:
I found this moth larvae on an apple tree in my garden. It is the larvae of a vapourer moth as far as I can tell though it doesn’t have the ‘tail’ tuft shown in a lot of photos. The odd thing about this species is that the female is flightless, looking a bit like a hairy overweight woodlouse! They live on a variety of trees and shrubs, as well as broad bean plants it would seem, as they have demolished mine very efficiently.
