Around 3,000 people celebrated woodland life past and present at the Ruislip Lido on Sunday (May 10).
Spectators of the The Ruislip Woods Festival enjoyed having a go at archery - thanks to Harefield Archers - and also tackled a climbing wall and met the Welsh Axe men.
Debbie Valman, secretary to The Ruislip Woods Trust, thought the highlight of the event was the Peregrin Falcon display.
She said: “It swooped at great speed just above the heads of the crowd from high over the lake.”
The Woodland Craftsmen showed off their skills in wood turning, basket weaving and besom broom making, and demonstrated charcoal burning, and the Wood Misor turned Ruislip Woods tree trunks into planks to be used for board walks.
Ms Valman added: “The ferrets were very popular and their were squeals of delight from the audience at the end of their races.”
Local associations made an appearance to share knowledge of the area and to encourage people of Hillingdon to get involved.
These included Friends of the Colne Valley, Ruislip & Hillingdon Natural History Societies and Wildlife Trusts.
A silent auction was held to win a Green Man head carved using a chainsaw by Mr Brian Savill.
The Ruislip Woods Festival is a free public event hosted by Hillingdon Council and The Ruislip Woods Trust.
