Part of an ancient woodland on steepslopes

A small step sloped woodland that is extremely difficult to access and best viewed from the pathway running through Brotherton Park, this wood is part of the much bigger Dibbinsdale woodland that runs from Clatterbridge through to Brotherton Park. Dibbinsdale is an SSSI, notified 1989 , The ground flora during spring is impressive with large blankets of bluebell, wood speedwell and wood anemone. Birds species too are numerous with many nesting and feeding opportunities in these well structured woodlands. Birds include song thrush, chiffchaff and blackcap.
