place for information on Ross-on-Wye and the Wye Valley
OF THE WYE VALLEY AND FOREST OF DEAN
Wye Valley and Forest of Dean is a fantastic area for those who
love wildlife. Bats, kingfishers, herons and otters can be seen
whilst walking the banks of the River Wye near Ross. Wild deer
and even wild boar can be found in the Forest of Dean. Even in
Ross Town, wildlife is not too difficult to spot - and can sometimes
be quite exotic. The waxwings below flew south and stopped off
in Ross town to eat the berries on the trees for well over a month.
love to film and photograph wildlife and living in Ross-on-Wye
has its advantages for this personal interest. Below are just
a few of the many hundreds of wildlife photos I have taken over
the past few years. Enjoy the photos and when you visit the area,
try to go out walking quietly by the river, or in the forest.
You may not see otters during the summer months as they tend to
hide from the canoes, but you will almost certainly see some of
the wildlife pictured below.
