Autumn

Autumn

Wistlandpound is a palette of beautiful colours in autumn as the deciduous trees allow their fallen golden leaves to carpet the forest floor and mushrooms push up from beneath the leaf litter.

Hawthorn, elder, and rowan trees are laden with berries that are eaten by the woodland birds and animals, whilst the nuts of hazel are gathered and stored by squirrels and hopefully, in the future, the rare dormouse.

It is the deer mating, or rutting, season and females can be seen wandering through the forest in groups under the protection of a large male stag.
