Wood ants' nest, Hawkbatch area of Wyre Forest
The wood ant, which is Britain's largest ant, is quite often seen in the Wyre Forest, and it is an indicator of healthy woodland. These ants make their nests from twigs, leaves and pine needles. The nests look like mounds, and also have large sections underground. A nest can last up to fifty years or so. This nest is about two feet high.
