Signs of ...? Hazel have shed this year's nuts, much to the squirrels' delight, and already they are beginning to grow catkins to fertilise next spring's flowers. And so the cycle of life goes on

Found yet another mature elm tree in this week. A really satisfying shape - there's certainly something about elms...

During survey of elm trees at last Saturday, unfortunately also found this trail left by Elm Zigzag Sawfly, Aproceros leucopoda, an invasive alien species that's spreading rapidly north through the country. Our struggling elms can do without this.

95% of people within Uk public survey rated Wildlife as top reason for valuing woodland. 🦋 But 53% of UK woodland species are declining. 🦉We need the public love for wildlife to be better reflected in future forestry policy 🤓
