NO1693 : A wood ant nest

taken 4 years ago, near to Braemar, Aberdeenshire, Great Britain

A wood ant nest
A wood ant nest
One of several large (and well populated) wood ant piles at the side of one of the forest tracks, comprised mainly of pine needles overlaying the soil core of the nest. The species is most likely to be Formica lugubris, the hairy wood ant, although I didn't get close enough to do a formal identification. They're unlikely to be the Scottish wood ant (Formica aquilonia) as this is a much rarer animal.
