Warburton's Wood reserve challenge

Set in a small valley by the banks of the River Weaver, Warburton’s Wood is an amazing example of clough woodland.

Kevin Feeney, Volunteer Co-ordinator (Area West), helps look after this precious woodland, near Kingsley.

“As a keen birder it’s fantastic to work in a nature reserve that is home to a whole host of woodland birds, especially the marsh tit, one our most endangered species.

It’s also a really great place to see some of Cheshire’s rarest trees, including the small leaved lime and wild service tree.

In the spring it’s a magical place with a stunning show of bluebells, yellow archangel, giant bellflower and wood anemone on display under a rich canopy of oak and ash.

The biggest challenge for the next year at Warburton’s Wood will be managing new habitats to ensure they become special for wildlife. We also need to monitor the rare species found in the woodland so we can take action before they decline.”

Kevin's 2017 task list:-

Thin and coppice trees to help young plants develop
Manage trees and install nest boxes for woodland birds
Maintain pathways so visitors can enjoy the reserve
