Not a species I know - don't

Not a species I know - don't have any Scots Pine locally. Hadrians Wall not far from you?

The more I know the more I realise I don't know

very close

Yes Hadrians wall is two mile as the crow fly's from mine I am on the north side of the wall about 3 mile from Housesteads it always quite busy now since they opened the whole wall up but I don't see any of the folks passing.There is a lot of pine tree belts (wind breaks) up here plus wark and kielder forest which is massive
