The New Forest in winter has a beauty all of its own. The warm russet colours of autumn are toned down and the Forest takes on its winter cloak. The spreading oak trees lay bare allowing the winter sunshine to penetrate onto the cold ground below. On a crisp sunny frosty morning with the sunlight shafting through the frosty mists is a most beautiful sight. Here are some pictures of Beaulieu Heath on such a morning.

Often at this time of year you can catch a glimpse of a herd of reindeer feeding on the acorns and foraging through the fallen leaves for food. As well as the famous New Forest ponies, the Commoners allow their pigs and cattle to roam loose on the Forest.

Although the Forest is sleeping there is a world of life just below the soil waiting to burst into life with the first rays of the warm spring sunshine.
