Beech Mast

This year has seen a fantastic abundance of natural foods for our local red squirrels. This red was filimed while it eat the Beech Mast. It was about 20min before our Ranger could see the squirrel in the trees she didnt like being filmed while it was eating. There was also 15 wood pigions taking advantage of the seeds the tree had to offer.
