Thanks Liam.  Wikipedia tells me that the bear and lynx became extinct around 500AD, and the wolves became very rare in England around 1500AD, hanging on for another 100 years or so in Scotland.  However, I haven't found much on the forests.This does bring to mind another question: is there any drive in Britain to try and re-establish natural ecosystems (although I know that defining "natural" is a judgement call)?  Here in the States I'd say there's a significant minority that would like to preserve lands in their most wild state, and I wonder if the British approach to preservation and nature is different?
