Kelling Heath

Jan&Feb2016nnwg 001

Kelling Heath is a beautiful Site of Special Scientific Interest, lying between Holt and Weybourne. It is a typical dry, acid heath – dominated by ling, bell heather, gorse, bracken, and areas of mixed woodland. However, if left unmanaged, both birch saplings and gorse can overwhelm such a site, at the expense of other wildlife – which is where the Workout Group volunteers come in…

Kelling Heath is home to important heathland bird and reptile species, and they rely on sensitive management (overseen by NCC’s ecologist) for survival.
