Seale Woods landscape

This woodland was planted in March 2002 to create three different woodland types: pure sweet chestnut, an oak/ash/hazel mix and a wet woodland. Native Black poplar can also be found along the stream on the eastern edge of the site.

The birds recorded on the site include skylarks, buzzards, sparrowhawks, kestrels and greater spotted woodpeckers.

Numerous dragonflies can be seen in the summer as well as butterflies, bees and many other insect species. Signs of rabbits, foxes and weasels have been found and there is evidence of water voles along the stream.
