Three Predators of the Woodlands

Posted by Tahlia David on

So I've talked a lot about some of the endangered animals in our woodlands here in the UK, so I thought I'd change it up a bit today and talk about the predators.  In this country, there's very few 'wild' animals that could cause a huge amount of harm to someone out for a walk luckily. So our predators are pretty deadly to their smaller prey, just not so much for us, which gives us a chance to admire them if we encounter them out in the wild.   1.

The Carmarthenshire 'Bucket List'

Posted by Tahlia David on

I've always found it quite a peaceful place, no phone signal, not allowed to stop the car, and rarely seeing another car over the road.
