Wildlife month by month


October is the perfect time to visit local woods and enjoy the colours of autumn as the leaves turn yellow, orange and red.  Mushrooms of all types and colours are most visible now.  You can discover lots of seeds and nuts on the forest floor.  There are lots of fun ideas for woodland activities on the Woodland Trust’s Nature Detectives website.

Edinburgh bigger woodlands are found at

  • Craigmillar Castle Park
  • Corstorphine Hill
  • Ravelston Woods
  • Hermitage of Braid
  • Cammo estate.
