Our woods are exciting and ever-changing places to visit and play host to species galore. If you want to know which flora and fauna you'll see this month, look no further. Here's our monthly round-up on woodland nature.
October should be the time for wildlife feasting on berries and nuts. We can feast too. Look out for ripening haws, sloes, elderberries and bilberry fruit. Our hedgerow tipples pack should give you plenty of ideas for using your bounty.
September also heralds the start of autumn. Check out our autumn pages for craft ideas, great events to attend and much more
