Woodford Halse

Woodford Halse: Two railway cuttings excavated around 100 years ago are now an important mosaic of scrub and grassland.

Over 160 species of flowering plant have been recorded, including twayblade and meadow saxifrage. Adders-tongue fern is found in some areas that are partially shaded by scrub.

The denser scrub provides winter feeding grounds for birds including fieldfare, redwing and wheatear, and also makes good nesting sites for lesser whitethroat, yellowhammer and linnet. The margins between the scrub and grassland are particularly significant for butterflies - seventeen species have been recorded.
