Natural History

Nore Barn Woods cover about 7 Acres of hawthorn and oak woodland . Some parts have a dense canopy. Where canopy is less dense many species of flowers exists, including bluebells. The Woods are in two areas North and South the latter being accessible to the public. The northern area is of a different character and is a typical example of a “wet woodland”.

A small reed bed contains a saline lagoon Separates the two areas. This lagoon was dug by local wildfowlers over 30 years ago, and is filled from fresh groundwater and occasional sea overtopping. The reed bed is home to reed warblers, ducks, egrets and the occasional kingfisher. The adjacent stream has been home to an overwintering Spotted Redshank for the last 14 years.
