Danby Wood nature reserve

Danby Wood is a small broadleaved semi-natural woodland and one of eight local nature reserves in Norwich. Up until the 1930s the site was a working chalk quarry with many banks, hills and hollows that can still be seen today. The most common trees that colonised the site are sycamore and ash but lime, beech and oak are also present. The woodland supports a wide variety of birds and speckled wood, tortoiseshell and small white butterflies can be seen here during the summer months. The site is adjoined by the Eaton golf course and only a short distance away from the Marston Marshes. A public footpath linking both areas leads along the edge of the golf course.
