Scot's pine

 It was somewhat remiss of me to return from Scotland without a picture of the Scot's pine, but here's some growing on heath in Sussex. Chailey Common to be precise, a lovely stretch of greensand heath overlying the wealden clays. 
Pinus sylvestris is another of our three native conifers. (I've done one already so there's the customary big money prize for guessing the third. It grows locally on the steep south-facing slopes of the A27 road embankment just outside Brighton.)
It's very late so that's all today. Will flesh this out a bit more tomorrow.

Still very late so perhaps tomorrow...
