    Hmm. Reminds of one day, twenty plus years ago at least. We, the guns, were being taken on a trailered pre-season tur of the shoot. To see the new games crops, release pens for the partridge, the new duck flight ponds and the newly planted small copse.

    "What sort trees are these then, Paul?" asks one of the gun as we get to the copse.

    "Mostly the wooden sort" says I before the Captain can reply. So that's sorted!

    Birds are the only taxon that has truly reliable and accurate apps.

    If you're using an Iphone, the Collins bird guide is excellent. If you're on android, the RSPB one is very nearly as good (and better for some aspects - the call library is often better).

    None of the Tree guides currently available are accurate enough for anything beyond very basic iDs - and several have some serious errors. Stick to the hard copy Collins for now.

    There are no even tolerably bad Plant apps. Just get a copy of Rose - it's really all you need.

    A bit of a funny story about tree recognition ! (an App would be a good thing)

    A few years ago I had a chap out to have a go at a fox. We ended up in a high seat looking over the end of the plantation. This fox must have ran up and down the treeline a few times before it stopped and looked settled.
    I said to the chap "its beside the silver birch", in what seemed like a long time a shot rang out and the fox was dead.

    It wasn't until we were home again that he said, he didn't want to look like a numpty and ask. But all that was going
    through his head at the time was "What the F*** is a silver birch?". lolol

    I would have thought that people who spend so much time in the outdoors(stalkers) would be able to identify
    the majority of native trees. I am shocked that anyone who stalks could not identify a silver birch.

    I have a wood burner and quickly come to terms on identifying trees. Soon learnt which was good and bad to burn, cut, split and season.

    Picture is too blurry. Have you got a close up of a leaf?
