Woodland Walks podcast with Adam Shaw and Woodland Trust guests
Do you know the difference between a rainforest and a normal forest? Or which moth looks like a fragment of 1970s carpet? Find out in our latest episode as we call on more staff from around the Trust to share their fascinating stories and favourite woods.
Joined by co-host Ruth, we meet Laura Shewring, Colin Riley, Paul Mosley and volunteer David Mason to hear about:
- rainforests in Wales, including Coed Felenrhyd & Llennyrch
- ancient Hyning Scout Wood in Lancashire, home to a rare moth
- the fairytale follies and water features of North Yorkshire's Hackfall
- how lockdown and climate change are drawing more attention to the power of woods and trees.

I am keen to hear from you as well – so if you have a favourite woodland walk, do tell me about it in a short email or if you can, make a 5 minute or so recording of your own walk and we may feature your woodland walk in a future podcast.
I’ll be off on another woodland walk soon. Hope you can join me.
