About the reserve
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 woodland lies near to the popular Raby Mere and is separated from Foxes and Intake Wood by two roadways. As with the other two woods, the ground flora during spring is impressive with large blankets of bluebell, wood sorrel and wood anemone. Birds species too are numerous with many nesting and feeding opportunities in these well structured woodlands. Birds include Green woodpecker, song thrush, willow warbler and tree sparrow.
