This extraordinary place is famous for its amazing wildlife, stunning scenery, and superb walks. From the seasonal abundance of stunning butterflies to the shining sands of Morecambe Bay, the area is simply awe-inspiring - full of natural spectacles and a surprise around every corner.
Woodland has probably been present at Grubbins Wood, a Cumbria Wildlife Trust reserve, since medieval times, although historically it would have been regularly coppiced to produce timber. Highlights include:
- Bluebell and Wild Garlic carpeting the woodland floor in spring and Greater Butterfly and Spotted Orchids in flower
- Don’t miss the Southern Wood Ants busy carrying food to their large nest mounds in the summer
- In autumn, bright red berries on the Lancastrian Whitebeam
- Waders and wildfowl down on the foreshore in winter
