It is pretty accurate - it is a large area of farmland.  Always
opportunities to add more detail though - when is a clump of trees part of
the farm, and when is it a natural=wood?
The biggest problem is deciding how to deal with edges of the areas - it is
neatest to share nodes, but it is a right pain to edit thenm once they are
joined together, so I think I kept a lot of them as separate nodes placed
very close together, but it does look as though there are noticable gaps

I'll add some field boundaries when I get bored....
