‘Team Nettlebed’ is a small informal group of volunteers who get together most Sundays and occasional weekdays to carry out conservation work on Nettlebed Common.
In winter we concentrate on pond restoration – removing excess vegetation such as overhanging trees that block the light and cause a build-
For the rest of the year, our main priority is reducing scrub (brambles, bracken, small trees such as birch that seed themselves wherever there is open space). This helps heather, foxgloves and many other flowering plants to thrive, and these in turn provide more food for butterflies, bees and other insects. Clearing scrub has many advantages: it creates a mosaic of different habitats, and gives the common a more open aspect, which is good news for human visitors too!
