A male Wild Boar in the Forest of Dean. This was photographed a couple of years ago, and we haven’t really had a decent fall of snow since, so I’m hoping for more this winter. The snow doesn’t really hinder the Wild Boar in their search for food, and they certainly endure colder and more harsh conditions in other countries. In fact, rooting in the snow also has the added benefit of exposing food to birds that would otherwise be unable to reach it. A Robin can be seen in this photo waiting for the boar to move along, but in fact there were 5 or 6 Robins following this boar around the woods.
