What's Happening in Nore Barn Woods

Spring 2020


With the Coronavirus restrictions, workdays in the woods have had to be cancelled.  The increased number of visitors (all hopefully at 2m gaps!) may be putting a strain on the woods, but the weather of late March and early April has been glorious, drying out some of the internal paths.


Blackthorn is fully out and there will be a good display of bluebells in April/May from the multitude of green shoots which are sprouting.


At the time of writing (25th March) the Spotted Redshank is still with us, which is quite late for the bird. It will soon be returning to the Arctic Circle to breed.

On the March workday 9 volunteers worked in the centre glade to cut back bramble. With the beginning of the bird nesting season this usually marks the end of the main conservation year.

 But rest assured - workdays will be returning – hopefully in the Autumn.
