Farnham Heath

882|420

Farnham Heath is a fantastic place and currently undergoing a massive transformation. Tina and I are members of the RSPB and we recently discovered Farnham Heath and the project being managed by Project Manager, Mike Coates. Tina arranged for her Scout group to attend a day’s volunteering. I busied myself taking photographs of the nature in the area, all for a good reason, to document the changes taking place.

Farnham Heath is currently a pine woodland, that was planted just after the war when the demand for timber was high. Now its going to be restored to its former glory to encourage Heathland species back to nest and breed. Nightjars are already returning as are Dartford Warbler. The task will take a few years to complete but it will be worthwhile in the long run.
