Glenarm Nature Reserve
Our woodlands are transforming; green leaves taking on fiery shades; bursts of red and purple berries and shiny brown acorns and nuts tempting thrushes and squirrels. For many plants, insects and some mammals, autumn is a time of slowing down, of shutting down. It’s all about changing where and how you live in preparation for the great annual emergency: winter.
If you are out and about, there is still plenty of wildlife to see - spotted this week at Glenarm - Dor beetle, peacock, silver-washed fritillary, white-tailed bumblebee and eristalis nemorum hoverfly
