Wildlife Everywhere!

Had a cracking day in the forest on Sunday with a good friend Scott Passmore. Spent 6hrs in a hide and managed to see fallow deer, red fox, buzzard, lizard and great spotted woodpeckers before heading out into the forest to try and track down some wild boar.
Didn't find any boar as the bracken and grass was just too high, but did see a goshawk, loads of butterflies and moths, and also 20+ deer, although one had seen better days!!!

Ten hour shift searching for wildlife and finding loads, so a very productive day. All photograph below are of wild animals, seen in the Forest of Dean on Sunday 22.07.2012.

Hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Not great for photography and pretty hard going on foot, but I love exploring areas like this!

  1. Hiya Rob, cracking shots, love the fox. The butterflies look like Ringlets rather than speckled woods, and the moths are 5 or 6 spotted Burnett moths not cinnabar moths. Its bloomin difficult to identify all these different critters isn't it.
    Keep it up buddy.
