July 2017 - The Heart of England Forest

Keeping up with the herd

Did you know we have rare breed cattle on our Farm? Guy, our Head Stockman, looks after our herd of rare breed longhorns as well as Herefords, Swiss simmentals, charolais and Belgian blues.

Beautiful butterflies

We know the Heart of England Forest is a great place to see butterflies so we asked Mike Slater, Warwickshire’s butterfly expert, to give us his thoughts on the Forest and what butterflies you can spot whilst you are out and about.

Volunteer Tony ‘branches out’

Heart of England Forest volunteer Tony Naylor has been to New Zealand and seen the giant kauri trees. He gives us an insight into how old they are, what threats they face and how the Forest Reserves and local volunteers are helping to conserve them.
