Had watched the BUCS relay centred at the Southern end of the forest earlier in the day but this didn't seem to help me much at all. Even though there were loads of features, i was ignoring them all, over simplifying the map and just taking bearings. By getting pushed wide by brambles I wasn't spiking much.

Time losses:
#2 20s - hesitation thinking i was nearing the control
#3 Had picked to take the routechoice right to the path but never hit and actually went pretty much straight which was slower in the green
#6 60s - Map didn't make sense here. Could have sworn i went over a ridge onto a pit but not on the map
#9 - 20s Ran past forgetting scale was 1:5000
#10 - Should have stayed on the path. Lost confidence when fighting through brambles
#14 3:50 - Ran past it. Don't know how i missed features such as boulder, thicket and hide to relocate
#18 90s Should have taken a bearing to be safe. Instead just ran over a hill then started hunting and was too far out to notice so had to bail to a path and relocate
