What’s happening in Nore Barn Woods?

December 2017 - February 2018

Winter is with us now, with many Brent geese in and flying over the harbour in large skeins.  Unusually, four Firecrests have been seen in the wood, and a Kingfisher on a tree overlooking the water.

The hedgerow project on the Solent Way continues. The final 60m of hedge was planted in January with 250 blackthorn and hawthorn saplings. A big Thank You to all volunteers who have helped on this major project.

On the January work party we cleared out the pond and cut reeds to keep the reed bed healthy.

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!).
