Look out for autumn wildlife

Flora and fauna in autumn

Some woodland animals hibernate to survive the winter months and can be tricky to spot, but as the golden leaves fall, exposing the bare branches of the trees it can become much easier to spot other active wildlife making preparations for the winter months.

If you’re visiting Scotland, you may be lucky enough to spot red squirrels gathering their winter stores and one of the most spectacular autumn sights is the rutting of the red deer from late September through to early November. Their large antlers and loud bellowing calls are not to be missed as the males compete for the females.

As the leaves fall to the ground, many different fungi appear, recycling the nutrients back to the forest soil. Autumn really is the best time of year to appreciate the unmistakably earthy smells of the forest.
