Holders Woods survey June 2016

Great day in the woods

Hot sunny day, nicley shaded under the canopy of Beech and Oak

Bugs and beasts in the undergrowth

A better day couldn't have been wished for - 
Plenty of activity in the woods to keep us enthralled, especially Tree Creepers and Woodpeckers.

Perhaps the star of the day was the Rhinoceros Beetle.

"Looking forward to further wildlife days in the woods" -

The lofty canopy  - "the woodland cathedral"

High rise dead oak, riddled with nooks and crannies, hollows and cavities;
ideal for bats, birds and many other beasts of the woodland
