Help keep Somerset's woodlands alive with wildlife and special for people
From bluebells to butterflies and woodpeckers to wrens, our woods and forests are home to an extraordinary range of creatures.
But woods are very special for people too. And that's hardly surprising, for until comparitively recently, Britain was an island of trees, blanketed with a dense layer of woods as complex and intricate as any city; their ancient trees the equivalent of cathedrals or skyscrapers.
Somerset Wildlife Trust is in the process of regenerating an area of traditional woodland the size of a football pitch at Thurlbear Wood Nature Reserve, off the A358 just east of Taunton. Projects like this enable light to reach the woodland floor, benefitting many of our favourite spring flowers, such as bluebells, birds such as the blackcap and willow warbler, and is also ideal for woodland butterflies.
