Spring has arrived

Skipton Castle Woods is bursting back to life after winter with carpets of wild garlic and many species of nesting birds. It’s a wonderful time to visit the woodland to walk or bird watch.

Here is a selection of images shared with us recently by local amateur photographers, Fred Rhodes and David Kelly.  Thank you to both for your wonderful photos. 

If you would like your work to feature here just share on social media using #SkiptonCastleWoods.

Keep checking back as we update our nature gallery each month.
