Spring and Summer 2015

Coombeswood Wedge springs back into life as new shoots appear and our summer visitors start to arrive. Already we are seeing large groups of migratory birds arriving or passing through the wedge on the way to their summer homes.


     Coombeswood wedge has been giving nature a home for many years and this year so far is no exception. Our resident buzzards perform their sky high aerobatics whilst tiny seedlings and more established plant life attracts a host of species.
