What’s happening in Nore Barn Woods?

 May 2018

Spring is really with us now, with warmer weather predicted for the Bank Holiday. Showers and cold weather have hopefully been left with April!

Blackthorn blossom is now out, and bluebells are beginning to flower in the west of the wood. An Orange Tip butterfly has been seen. A rookery has been reported in the SW of the wood, with 4 nests

On the April work party we refurbished the centre glade, which had suffered from people breaking down hedges and creating additional paths.

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!).
