TADNOLL and Winfrith Nature Reserves are fantastic sites for wildlife, both nationally and internationally protected for the rare lowland heathland habitat found there, as well as the many associated rare plants and species.

This winter we have undertaken work which has been funded and supported by Natural England in order to safeguard the future of these important heathland sites and restore areas of both heath and mire.

Some of this work has involved the clearance of Birch, Pine and Alder trees which have over the years encroached on to the rare heathland and mire.

These areas, once re-instated will provide vital habitat for many of the UK’s rarest heathland wildlife.

Please do get in contact with DWT at enquiries@dorsetwildlifetrust.org.uk, or Natural England at enquiries@naturalengland.org.uk if you require further information.
