Activity description: Removing gorse

Meeting place: At the junction of Brazen Gate and Queens Road Norwich, opposite the main bus station. Wait for the minibus under the glass-covered walkway outside the big Sainsbury's.

Activity location: Mousehold Heath, Main access off Gurney Road at Zaks, NR14HW

Site description: Mousehold contains precious remnants of heathland habitat which we are helping to protect by removing invasive species. There is a wealth of wildlife on Mousehold Heath, including birds, lizards, butterflies, dragonflies and small mammals. As well as common woodland birds, there are green and greater-spotted woodpeckers and sparrowhawks and kestrels are sometimes seen. In early spring, mating frogs gather around the Vinegar Pond and on warm summer days lizards can often be seen in the open heathland areas.
