Track Rooted by Wild Boars, Waterfall Wood
Track Rooted by Wild Boars, Waterfall Wood
A popular spot for Wild Boars to root around the grassy track for grubs and worms. A lot of hoofprints heading into the cover of the trees either side too. Boars are nocturnal tending to come out at dusk. Boars first reappeared in this after the great storms of 1987 and 1991 believed to have escaped from a commercial farm near Tenterden. Since then they have slowly grown in number and are spreading to other nearby woods in their search for food. The result of their rooting is to enable plants such as violet, fleabane and creeping buttercup to colonise the disturbed soil. Boars are not dangerous unless they feel endangered themselves, if you provoke a sow with a new born litter then you will need to learn to climb trees fast.
