The Friends of Nore Barn Woods

      What’s happening in Nore Barn Woods?

 

      December 2018

Currently we are planting a new blackthorn hedge on the west path to protect the woods from gales, and doing work on the south path hedge to thicken it. We are also replacing this month those hedge saplings in the Wayfarers Walk hedge which died during the summer drought.

 

In addition, HBC will be doing some minor tree works to allow more light into some dead areas. These trees will regrow and we will add some extra planting such as spindle and sea buckthorn to provide variety.

 

The “Nore Barn” Spotted Redshank which returned to the stream on the 29th October for its 15th winter continues to fascinate passers-by. The normal flocks of Brent Geese and Wigeon are sitting off the marsh area. A huge buzzard has been flying at low level through 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!).
