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.
With the recent warmer weather we should all be seeing beautiful bluebell carpets in woods this month. If you're not sure where to spot them try our bluebell wood finder. Other blooms to look out for this month are gorgeous pink-purple foxgloves, yellow pimpernel, hawthorn and spindle. If the weather stays warm we should see a big jump in butterfly sightings too. Look out for speckled wood and green hairstreaks and don't forget to listen out for the enchanting nightingale while you're out and about.
If you take any pictures, remember to share them with us. If you share before 31 July you could win £500 in our photography competition
