Birds Wood with cloudsA small family owned woodland in the heart of the Derbyshire Peak District. The wood has a public footpath running through it with mainly mixed broadleaf above to the right and an over mature Larch plantation to the left as you go down.

willow warblerAs part of the East Midlands woodland bird project and with the help of the Forestry Commission we are going to manage the wood to increase the biodiversity and encourage target bird species. This will involve felling the Larch plantation and replanting with broadleaf trees, planting the fields to the east of the larchwood, thinning the established woodland to enable the best trees to flourish, get more light to the understorey and even ringbarking some trees to create standing deadwood to benefit the wildlife.

Target bird species

  • Redstart
  • Pied Flycatcher
  • Tree Pipit
  • Wood Warbler
  • Lesser Redpoll
