We want to build a wildlife tower in our community woodland to provide habitat for endangered birds, bats, butterflies and other beasties.

The Ashing Lane Nature Reserve has been created by local volunteers to provide new opportunities for wildlife and a wonderful, peaceful place to walk, run and enjoy the natural world.  The 32 hectare (77 acres) Reserve is visited regularly by many local people and we have recently added a Nature Trail for families which has been very successful.

Watts Wood was planted in the 1990s. Planting began in Monks Wood in 2009 and Lincolnshire Coop Wood in 2011 and today there is a mosaic of habitats, wet woodland, ponds and a lake, meadows and glades. 

Short eared, barn and tawny owls and kestrels hunt across the Reserve and we want to provide a more permanent structure that will offer them places to nest. We will use the Barn Owl Trust's plans (their tower is shown in the photo) to build a Wildlife Tower that includes reclaimed materials and volunteer hands to construct it.


We are raising money to pay for the materials to build our version of this wonderful tower on the eastern edge of North Wood.
