Signs of winter

Winter is a time of subtle beauty and hidden wild treasures to spot.

With leaves and foliage dormant, we can see the stark bare branches of trees, and maybe notice details previously hidden- the variety of texture and colour of tree bark and buds storing up energy for future blooms. 

Migratory birds are frequent residents during winter months, and some birds even put on impressive displays called murmurations which help them to keep warm and confuse predators. 

With less available light, and more animals hibernating, it may be harder to spot the usual mammalian visitors. But with a little luck, and the right weather, you just might see evidence of their visits in the form of tracks on a snowy day.

We've picked some of our favourite winter highlights to look out for below!
