Wildlife Walks in the New Forest
The forest is a living and working place where ponies, donkeys and cattle freely graze the land and help to keep the patchwork of different habitats intact. Deeper in the forest, wild deer browse beneath canopies of mighty oak and beech - natural scenes unchanged by the modern world. And around the third week in September you can usually find the pigs who have been let out for Pannage roaming the forest too.
With a variety of nature reserves and vast heathland and woodland, the forest is a haven for any bird watcher. There are around 100 species of breeding birds in The New Forest.
So, you are never really far from wildlife on any walk in the New Forest.
