Hidden Gems

Thursday, May 16th 2013

Off the beaten track there are some beautiful ancient trees in the reserve. These provide valuable food and shelter for wildlife.

Tree

Wood Sorrel often grows on these old tree trunks.

Tree2

Many species benefit from this kind of habitat including Great Spotted Woodpeckers who not only feed on the invertebrates that live amongst the bark but also make their nests in the ready made holes.

Tree3

Ancient Ash trees mark out old field boundaries. So far there is no sign of Chalara dieback on the reserve which is good news.

Ash roots

There are several events in the pipeline including the summer BBQ. Please see the events section for details. If you are spring cleaning and come across any unwanted items, please bring them into the Field Centre at anytime where they will be gratefully received for the car boot sale.
