Legend has it that shortly before dawn, the forest was bewitched and full of secrets. This is the time when one of its most skittish residents can be seen: the deer. Old legends say that stags have demonic powers. The black woodpecker used to be suspected of witchcraft because of the strange noises it makes, while badgers were suspect for being nocturnal.
