    One year ago a young man, known to many as the campaigner and activist Iggy Fox, passed away. Honouring his memory, on a misty Saturday morning we ventured deep into the woods surrounding Oxford. Following the river, we traversed Aston's Eyot and the Kidneys before making a stop by the ancient Iffley Yew. We marvelled at the TARDIS in Rivermead Nature Park before crawling under the Southern By-Pass Road into the woodlands beyond. The terrain was difficult to navigate, slippery and wet. We found scarlet elf cup (Sarcoscypha coccinea) and suddenly in the distance glanced the outline of a roe deer. Quickly grabbing my telephoto lens, I saw him - a beautiful roe deer buck with velvet antlers. He looked at me calmly for what seemed like a very long time before turning and slowly sauntering off. Stunned we walked on, following the overflowing river before making it across at the barely passable path near Sandford Lock. We ventured into Radley Large Wood and visited the magic ancient Ash Grove in Radley Little Wood. By now, the sun had finally won the battle with the mist. In the glorious spring-like sunshine, we traversed the splendours of Bagley Wood. A glorious hike but what will the future hold if we do not act now against climate change? Iggy Fox wrote, "What matters is that we keep moving on until we get there". It is a simple question "What will you tell the future?":

    Really great pictures!
    One day I might make it to your beautiful island by bike.
    The pictures make you want more.
    Since the car, bus, plane and ferry are not options for me, all that remains is the sailing ship and the train. For the time being, I can get very far on foot, by bike or tandem on the double continent of Eurasia without the aforementioned means of transport.
