Bio-diversity

Blinkbonny is a working woodland. It was planted with a mixture of Japanese Larch, Scots Pine and Norway Spruce around about 1960, and had been plantation prior to that. Like a lot of plantation woodland the density of tree planting precluded a wide range of species, but we have been managing it with a much higher priority for bio-diversity over the last ten years.

We are trying to map the flora and fauna of the woodland, but are far from experts in the field. We will use this page to list all the species that are identified by ourselves or visitors to the wood.
