The wood itself



I thought it might be a good idea to let you see what the wood itself looks like since it has been specific items you've seen up till now.

It is reasonably open with a good variety of tree species, so a large variety of birds are attracted.

Obviously this has both good points and bad, since some of the birds will prey on others. We witnessed this today in Culzean Country Park when we saw carrion crows kill two ducklings which were crossing open ground with their mother. She tried to protect them, but each time she turned to drive off one attacker another swooped behind her. Nature in the raw.

Did you not feel like intervening? Or were you doing a David Attenborough and just letting them get on with it?

If I'm prepared to sanction the killing of animals for my consumption, then it would be more than hypocritical to intervene.
