Dunwich Heath
1 Peace
2 Quite
3 Nature
4 Species
4.1 Dartford warbler
4.2 Nightjar
4.3 Woodlark
4.4 Any-Lion
5 Serene
6 Wild
7 Alive with colour
8 Heather
9 coconut-scented yellow gorse
10 Parking restrictions may operate at times of extreme fire risk
11 Not an overly high level of litter
11.1 12 pieces of litter in a 20m radius
12 88 hectares of land
13 Natural trust site
14 Part of the area is private land for science purposes
15 Mount pleasant farm is in the area
16 Special protected areas
17 Outstanding level of natural beauty
18 When purchased it was under pressure of development
19 Lost to tourism
20 Declined since the 18th century
21 1 mile shingle beach with a vegetated cliff
22 Wet woodland
23 Acid grassland
24 Coastal lowland heath - only site in East Anglia
25 3m wide ditch which was dug out reservoir in case of fire
26 There is aquatic vegetation
27 2008 docwra's ditch is undertaking management which maintains the water system
28 Slubbing
29 Anaerobic soil
30 Common heather makes perfect nests for the Dartford warbler
31 The Dunwich heath found the 1st pair of Dartford warblers after 80 years of no sight of them in 1986
32 The Dartford warbler does not migrate in the winter
33 here are 31 pairs of stonechat here
34 There are 31 pairs of the linnet here
35 Bracken encroachment is a good habitat for reptiles
36 Mini deserts
37 They have volunteers that go out nearly ever night and do moth trapping and analyse to log species that occur
38 The cliff has layers of sand and flint which are both soft
39 The erosion happens in a dynamic process
40 Dunwich heath is one of the fasted eroding coastlines in Europe
41 Dramatic change
42 Certain habitats depend on erosion
43 In around 50 years roads and access to the site may crumble away
44 North fields had re-seeding and sulphuring in 2005
45 Southern fields have minimum management - wiping ragwort
46 Holds 30 different insects
47 Planting new hedges in the farm
48 On-going battle against litter
49 Hard getting the balance of conservation and recreation
50 Loads of second homes in the area
51 Seasonal tourism
52 High risk of fire
53 Difficult to keep all the different groups happy - e.g. restrictions on where dogs can come off their leads to prevent disturbance of nature
54 Photographs may damage vegetation
55 Biological surveys monitor different threatening factors - development, pollution as it changes pH of soil, climate change.
56 Sound/Sight is done by the generic bird survey where volunteers map to show where the different birds are and where they nest
57 Random species sampling test - square thrown and then you write down all the species of both animals and plants that are in the selected area
58 Send online forms to butterfly organisation
59 Need to ensure success of all species
60 Countryside stewardship funding
61 Government pays funding if you are succeeding in only management
62 Acid grassland and scrub management - if it is not managed it would convert back in to woodland
63 Retain occasional large open ground trees
64 Retaining patches of scab
65 Manage other habitats - e.g. Pine and grassland
66 Diversify heather age structure
