Pig and piglets in woodland alongside Ober Water, New Forest
Pig and piglets in woodland alongside Ober Water, New Forest
A strip of riverine woodland follows the course of Ober Water, and at its edges it can be a bit scrubby - as shown in this photo. These pigs have come into the woodland from the neighbouring heath in search of food and are rooting in the soft soil and eating acorns from the oaks. Each year the pigs (which belong to New Forest commoners) are allowed onto the open Forest for 60 days, known as "pannage" season, to eat acorns which would otherwise poison the ponies.
