The Friends of Nore Barn Woods

What’s happening in Nore Barn Woods?    

December 2019

Winter is coming quickly, with numerous berries of hawthorn, sloe and spindle on bushes. A prolific year for oaks too, with a multitude of acorns littering the forest floor.



On 2nd December rangers from Bird Aware Solent held a 2 hour “pop up event as part of their Great Solent Birdwatch event.


In November, 50 hawthorn and blackthorn saplings were planted to fill in gaps in the hedge along the Solent Way. Work has also begun to lay the hedge along the Solent Way – saplings must be at least 2 inches for this, but it produces a dense hedge, beneficial to wildlife.


Work days have continued in the wood, future work days will be held throughout the year on the following Saturdays 9:30 to 12:00 noon. All welcome. Meet at the shore end of Warblington Road. Please bring gardening gloves – everything else is provided (including refreshments!).
