Woodlice.  Nikon D7000
6th September 2016

One of the Elder trees at the bottom of the garden is not just looking 'seasonal', it is looking almost dead.

I had an investigate today and discovered that when the chicken pen was around it, the chickens seemed to have pecked at the lower parts of the bark; the water has got in over the summer and the bark has now rotted off, leaving the tree 'ringed'.

I did find some bark still on the tree, but it is dead and the woodlice have made it their home.
