The Secret Wildlife of the Forest of Dean
Nick Martin

The beautiful Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire harbours a wide range of woodland wildlife, including many secretive and surprising animals and birds.  We'll look for the elusive goshawk the shy dipper and the exotic mandarin ducks.  Find out where adders hide, dormice feed and about the exciting return of the wild boar to the woodland scene.

Please note that this is a provisional booking at the moment. We will be following whatever regulations apply at the time.
