What to expect
Farnham Heath nature reserve is a lowland heathland restoration site. This precious habitat, important for many specialist species of invertebrates, sand lizards and birds such as nightjars, woodlarks and Dartford warblers, was converted to a pine plantation. We are now reverting the site back to heathland and having felled the pines; the heather is emerging, but is competing with pine and birch saplings that will eventually take over the area if left alone. The reserve is adjacent to the Rural Life Centre with an on-site café, toilets and easily-accessible car park.
