An isolated burial mound

An isolated barrow overlooking a combe in Dorset.

The fallen tree in the foreground looks a bit like an animal protecting the burial site and animals use the pine tree as a rubbing post. A closer look reveals quite deep scratch marks on the tree.

A bet this is a bit spooky at night?

Trapped in Dorset

An illegal trap but still in use in parts of Dorset, particularly near pheasant rearing pens that are nearly always 'off the beaten track'. You can still see the leg bones of the fox that was caught in this trap, where's the rest of it?.
