Foraging for Bilberries

A great afternoon in Pengelli Forest, the oldest oak woodland in West Wales.  What could be better than a group of family and friends traipsing through the forest looking for bilberries?  The kids were enthusiastic, the weather was mild, laughter was the order of the day!

We found lots of bilberry bushes and spent ages picking, eating, dropping them all, picking them up again, and then finally putting them safely into the boot of the car.
