Captain's Wood

Captain's Wood is an ancient woodland owed by Suffolk Wildlife Trust. The woodland has many wild plants and a mix of natural habitats for a wide range of wildlife. The wood is an excellent place to find bluebells in the spring.

There is a large area of coppiced hazel as well as oak and sweet chestnut in the wood.  These create an abundance of food for wild life such as squirrels, woodpeckers, jays, nuthatches and other small mammals.

Although fallow deer were spotted I was too slow to get a photo.  There were several dragonflies about and also some butterflies.
