WORKING FOR WILDLIFE IN DORSET

 

 

LOCAL NATURE RESERVES

 

 

 

 

Local Nature Reserves are for both people and wildlife, and provide opportunities for people to enjoy wildlife at first hand.  Radipole Community Woodland has been proposed as a Local Nature Reserve for its special value for wildlife, local people and schools. 

 

The site has the potential to be significantly enhanced for both wildlife and public enjoyment through appropriate management.  It provides an opportunity for the local people to get involved in looking after their nature reserve through the careful management of its important features, recording wildlife, enhancing habitats and improving access for the benefit of people today and future generations.

 

This Management Plan aims to explain clearly to anyone involved in the local nature reserve what is already important on the site.  It also establishes the potential for how it can be maintained or enhanced and sets out what can be realistically achieved, when and by who and the cost involved.  Finally, it is a document to be used and modified in response to monitoring and further knowledge about site.

Vision for the future

 

Radipole Community Woodland should be allowed to develop as a haven for local wildlife with management aiming to maximise structural diversity in the woodland and increase overall biodiversity. Light will penetrate the woodland canopy to the ground flora below and open meadow areas and margins of regularly coppiced smaller trees species and shrubs will be rich in plants and invertebrates.

 

To the south of the old field boundary, where the trees are more established and the site narrows, trees such as oak, birch and ash should be allowed to develop into a woodland canopy.  Allowing light in by coppicing the hazel, thorns and field maple will help to create an interesting woodland flora or field layer.  Some planting of additional appropriate species, may be required as it can take a long time for some woodland plants to colonise new woodlands, particularly in urban locations.

 

To the north of the old boundary the area should have a wider range of habitats with a combination of coppice with standards, regularly cut scrub and open grassland habitats, particularly on the sunnier eastern side of the site.  A small pond may be considered in the future to increase the diversity further. 

 

The old field boundary will be retained as a feature with the valuable mature trees and ivy.

 

The visitor will have the opportunity to walk through areas of scrub and small trees alive with warblers in the spring, enjoy open meadow areas teeming with butterflies, insects and flowers in the summer and admire the beauty of maturing trees with open crowns.  They will then be able to walk into a more enclosed woodland canopy with an interesting woodland flora. The boundary hedges will help to create a sense of ‘being away from it for a while’.

 

Local schools will use the site on a regular basis getting involved in the monitoring and recording of species and perhaps adopting trees.  Practical tasks will involve the children further in managing the reserve such as creating log piles and involvement in a tree nursery on site. Interpretation at the access points will serve to educate and inform about the reserve and the activities.  The Friends Group will continue to recruit new members from the local community and become part of a network of groups across the county helping to manage and monitor Local Nature Reserves.

1.3       Obligations

 

Under health & safety regulations there is a duty of care afforded to users of the site and reasonable measures must be in place to proactively manage risks to everyone that visits or works on the site. This relates especially to paths and trees.

 

Risk assessments are a requirement under the management of health & safety regulations for all operations and for site condition.

 

The Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981 (as amended) places responsibility upon the managers of the site to ensure disturbance of protected nesting birds is avoided.

 

1.4       Access The site has free, open access throughout.  The main access points are shown on Plan B.

 

1.5.1        Description

 

1.5.2        Biological and Physical

 

Dorset County Council acquired Radipole Wood in 1974, as surplus land from the town centre relief road.  The land was then grazed by horses until it was planted as predominantly native woodland in 1994 and 1995 to celebrate the Weymouth Civic Society’s 50th anniversary.  A variety of tree and shrub species were planted including oak, ash, wayfaring, field maple, dogwood and hawthorn. The majority of the trees planted are doing well.  Species are mixed across the site with some small group plantings.  The site is situated on Oxford Clay and in natural circumstances would develop into damp oak woodland.  This was taken into account when the species of trees and shrubs were chosen.

 

Temporary mown paths were created between the trees and these have now become permanent informal paths as shown on Plan B.  In places the paths widen to form glades within the planted areas for example, around a newly erected seat.  Currently the area of trees and shrubs is approximately 80% and the area of grassland glades and widened paths is about 20%.

 

One main woodland glade or open, seasonally wet grassland area exists at the northern eastern edge of the site, (Compartment 1, Plan B).  A botanical survey of the grassland was undertaken in May 2003 and shows a relatively rich ground flora including several Dorset notables; black knapweed, greater and common bird’s foot trefoil and corky-fruited water dropwort.   Bee orchid another Dorset notable has also been recorded in the southern part the site. The ground flora is relatively diverse and there is significant potential for increasing the botanical diversity through appropriate management.  Increasing the size and number of glade areas and woodland/scrub and meadow margins would benefit a wealth of wildlife including small mammals, butterflies such as speckled wood and common blue previously recorded on the site, and other invertebrates such as the nationally scarce long–winged conehead. Appendix 1. gives a full list of tree species recorded on the site.

 

The old field boundary dividing the site is an interesting feature with mainly ivy covered mature hawthorns and ash.  The western boundary is an open fence line but will be planted with a native hedge. 

 

Two veteran oaks can be found at the northern end of the site, near the eastern boundary.  A number of other veteran oaks can also be found along the opposite roadside on the western side of the site. 

 

The site is still developing as the young trees grow. This will have a bearing on what happens over the next 10 years and some reactive management will be necessary depending on the speed at which growth occurs and affects other aspects.   

 

1.5.3        Cultural

 

The area is a very valuable amenity for local residents walking dogs or just enjoying the open space and natural wildlife.  It is also used by some school children to walk to school.   Enthusiastic local residents with the help of the Local Nature Reserves Project and Dorset County Council Conservation Rangers have set up a ‘Friends of Radipole Community Woodland’.  They meet regularly to work on the site and have set up their own web site.  

 

2.         EVALUATION AND OBJECTIVES

 

2.1.1        Evaluation of features

 

2.1.2        Biological

 

Size: A small area of only 1.3 hectares

 

Diversity:  Young woodland and grassland with the potential for increasing the structural and habitat diversity of the site through appropriate management.

 

Fragility: In the absence of management the site may develop into a woodland with limited structural and species diversity, without the development of open crown woodland trees or diverse ground flora associated with meadows and glades and a more open canopy.

 

Position in the ecological unit:  The woodland is on the urban fringe, adjoining farmland and close to valuable wetland habitats. The woodland is an important natural area within Radipole, particularly since the building of Weymouth Way.  Situated between the Radipole Lake Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) to the south and Lorton Meadows SSSI and 2-Mile Coppice SSSI to the north east it is a valuable wildlife habitat between the sites.  It is also situated near to the Radipole School Lane Local Nature Reserve to the west of Radipole Lane, a rich varied wildlife habitat which will complement the proposed Local Nature Reserve.

 

Potential value: There is significant potential for enhancement by creating structural diversity within the woodland and opening up the canopy to create a more species rich ground flora. Some introduction of native species could be considered.  Creating open grassland areas and glades, and low scrub areas will increase the biodiversity of the area further.

 

2.1.3        Community and Access

 

There is potential for more members of the local community to become involved in the Friends group and for local schools to use the site.  Two Local Nature Reserves within close proximity provide a significant local educational resource, with an opportunity to compare sites and see how the woodland site develops and how the wildlife responds.  Located on the urban fringe it is a valuable amenity for local people and with interpretation and management the site could provide a more pleasurable experience for all the community.

 

2.2       Ideal Management Objectives

 

The overall management objectives:

 

1.      To manage the developing woodland to create a mixed open to closed canopy woodland with structural diversity and interesting ground flora.

2.      To maintain and enhance the existing grassland areas and increase the woodland/meadow margins.

3.      To maintain and enhance the habitats for the key Dorset notable species and undertake appropriate monitoring.

4.      To maintain and enhance where appropriate external boundaries and maintain the internal boundary as an important feature.

5.      To improve accessibility of the site for all ages and abilities, where practicably possible.

6.      To maintain the reserve as a valued local community amenity encouraging the involvement of the wider community through the Friends Group, local schools and the provision of good interpretation.

7.      To adhere to necessary legal health and safety requirements.

 

2.3        Factors influencing management

 

2.3.1        Natural trends

 

The young woodland is developing and it is difficult to predict how it will develop.  Some species will naturally do better than others and it may be necessary to consider felling and thinning those species which appear not to be doing so well, focusing on a more limited number of species or planting alternative species such as sallow and guelder rose on the wetter flushes.  Management will need to be adjusted as appropriate.

 

2.3.2        Management Constraints

 

The local Friends Group will help manage the community woodland with advice from Dorset County Council Field Conservation Team and the Local Nature Reserve Officer.  The Civic Society will also be consulted and their Landscape Architect will also be able to offer advice.  Dorset County Council Countryside Team and others will give members of the group the necessary training and support, however, due to a review of the service it is difficult to state how many days they will be able to offer in the future. The Friends Group is very committed and members have a range of expertise to offer.  They plan to involve outside specialists/conservation groups where possible.

 

Achievement of the objectives will depend on the time members of the group are able to spend on the site, how independent the group is able to become, and how successful they are in securing funds from the various sources of external funding.

 

3.         MANAGEMENT OPERATIONS AND OUTLINE PRESCRIPTIONS

 

Objective 1: To manage the developing woodland to create a mixed open to closed canopy woodland with structural diversity and an interesting ground flora.

 

In 10 years time the trees in Compartments 2 and 3 may need thinning by up to 25 to 30%, (approximately 3-5 metres a part), if the woodland is to develop with open crowns rather than thin poles more akin to a forestry plantation.  Leaving piles of deadwood will create important wildlife habitats.  Ash and field maple are common on the site and could be targeted for thinning.   Additional trees to be removed may be Scot’s pine as they are not native in this area and are perhaps not so suited to the broad leaved woodland landscape.  Horse chestnut trees tend to grow very large, have limited wildlife value and unless retained on the boundaries for conker fun may need to be removed.  Wild flowering cherries are non-native in this area but are very attractive within the woodland setting.

 

1.         Maintain the woodland areas in Compartment 2. by cutting/coppicing path edges and glades and bays, rotational cutting of scrub, pruning overhanging branches, thinning and selecting specimen trees and pollarding a small number of trees such as oak near the boundaries.

 

2.                  Maintain the woodland in Compartment 3. by a combination of non-intervention and  thinning. 

 

3.                  Coppice the smaller trees and shrubs such as hazel, field maple and hawthorn on approximately a 7-year rotation in both Compartments 1 and 2.  This will create a woodland with a more diverse and interesting structure.   Some areas could be coppiced earlier and some later to create a range of age stands across site.

 

4.         Consider the introduction of native species into the woodland flora such as wood anemone.

Appendix 2. includes a number of extracts from ‘Creating New Native Woodlands’  J. Rodwell and G.  Patterson (1994) which may help in both picturing the desired and most appropriate woodland type, (W8 Lowland mixed broadleaved woodland with dog’s mercury), and ways to achieve a more diverse woodland flora.

 

5.         Cut back areas of dense bramble and thorn to regenerate new growth and prevent areas becoming too leggy.

 

Objectives 2 and 3:

To maintain and enhance the existing grassland area in Compartment 1. and increase the woodland/meadow margins.

To maintain and enhance the habitats for the key Dorset notable species.

 

The existing trees will eventually shade the grassland habitat and reduce its botanical value and value of invertebrates such as butterflies and grass hoppers. This compartment benefits from the warmer aspect and therefore is the ideal compartment to manage for the meadow interests.  The grassland should be managed to improve the botanical diversity by adopting a mowing regime and removing the cut material.

 

1.      Increase and define the area of seasonally wet grassland in Compartment 1 by removing more trees and leaving just some specimen trees or low scrub around the edges. 

 

2.   Cut grassland glades every year initially to reduce the ranker vegetation, but thereafter some areas should be cut just once every three years to retain the tussocky structure important to invertebrates.  In small areas, if the cut can be done by hand, the diversity of the sward structure and associated wildlife will really benefit. Cutting should be no earlier than the end of July when plants have set seed. Strips (2 to 3 metres) could be left along side the planted areas for the benefit of small mammals and invertebrates however these will need cutting at least once every three years so they do not become too rank and lose their value. 

 

Small paths could be cut through the meadow prior to the main cut so everybody can enjoy the meadow.  The mowing regime may need to be adjusted as a result of monitoring surveys.

 

3.   The main pathways will need cutting frequently, possibly on a weekly basis.

 

4.        Consideration could be given to creating another small woodland glade in Compartment 2.

 

5.        A simple but effective monitoring programme Conservation which can then be undertaken by Friends Group members and school children. should be developed with the help of local experts, Dorset County Council and local specialist groups such as Butterfly Conservation.

 

6.         Objective 4:

To maintain and enhance external boundaries and maintain the internal boundary as an important feature.

 

1.                  Maintain the internal field boundary by improvements to the path surface and constructing steps over the boundary. 

 

2.                  Retain mature trees on the old boundary and consider laying and inter planting where appropriate. 

 

3.                  A native hedge should be planted along the western boundary to reduce noise, make it more secluded and add to the wildlife value of the site. 

 

Objective 5: To improve accessibility of the site for all ages and abilities, where practicably possible.

 

1.         The access points will be maintained and improved.  Some lengths of paths will be surfaced to allow wheelchair access, for example, the length of path from the northern gate by Radipole Lane to the bench in the glade.  The kerb in Mount Pleasant north will also be lowered.

 

Objective 6: To maintain the reserve as a valued local community amenity encouraging the involvement of the wider community through the Friends Group and local schools.

 

1.         The Friends Group will be developed further with the help of DCC organising work parties and training days (for example, Health and Safety, use of hand tools and so forth).  The Friends Group will maintain records of finance and projects and secure appropriate funds using appropriate grants.  Other developments will include a web site and links with other relevant sites including Dorset County Council Local Nature Reserve’s site, which is currently being developed.

 

2.         Interpretation for the site will involve informative boards at access points and possibly a leaflet for schools. The site will be promoted through guided walks and events using Dorset County Council staff and local experts.

 

3.         Schools will be contacted and the site developed for environmental educational for schools and colleges including adult education.  Education materials may be produced in the future with support from Dorset County Council Local Nature Reserve Project.  Close links should be developed with Radipole School Local Nature Reserve.

 

4.                  Create a tree nursery on site for school children and other groups to be involved in, collecting seed from site and creating a stock of local provenance.

 

Objective 7. To adhere to necessary legal health and safety requirements.

 

1.         Dorset County Council will undertake inspections for health and safety regularly and reduce hazards following those inspections.

 

4.         5 Year work plan (see attached)

 

5.         Site Plans

 

Plan A  Radipole Community Woodland

 

Plan B Pathways, location of access points, management compartments and annotations. (to be digitized for final plan)

 

6.     Management Plan review and Site Monitoring

 

The Management Plan should be reviewed every five years to ensure objectives are being met or are altered accordingly to meet changes. An agreed annual work plan should be considered for each year.

 

The amount of site monitoring will depend to large extent on expertise of the group, the number of training days DCC can arrange for the Friends Group, and the involvement of local expertise/specialist groups.  Ideally botanical and invertebrate monitoring in the established and newly created grassland areas would be valuable.  Additional monitoring of other associated wildlife including bird usage and bats would be valuable. 

 

Some feedback from the local community on the development of the LNR would also be really valuable and could be undertaken by the Friends Group by the use of a questionnaire.
