Blue Beck Copse

To the south of the New Meadow and west of the cycle track is a small copse which had been planted from around 1994 onwards with regular sessions of coppicing to bring a rang of heights to the variety trees and shrubs within. With the one-time hedge come fence to the north of it having been layed in 2013, this will be fenced off inside the New Meadow. Jays have been regular visitors but Sparrowhawk are believed to have nested here in 2012.

Early in 2015 three specially prepared nest boxes were erected for Willow Tits which had been sighted the previous year, along with some other nest boxes from the Copse which had been cleaned and repaired prior to relocation.

During 2014 and 2015 the hedge between it and New Meadow that had been layed in 2013 was interplanted with additional trees to help restore it.
