Wed 9th March 2022 - Bouldnor Forest, Yarmouth. GG # 875.

 Terry's Photographs.

Mark's Editorial.

Have you ever had a look at the IWGG twitter page? I took the opportunity this week to change the title photo as the light and scenery was really good at Bouldnor Forest.  ...please follow!

This is a Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust heathland restoration project.  The site was a conifer plantation until around a decade ago. Once harvested of timber the aim was to reinstate the heathland habitat that once grew along this cliff top. We were today processing previously cut gorse and regenerating trees, creating a patchwork of varying heights of gorse to encourage some specialist heathland species. Plus allowing microclimates to exist at ground level.  The Heathers are doing well, it is a great place and is accessible from along the cliff path from Cranmore.

Many thanks to Terry for the photographs and to Mark for the words. 👍👏.
