Sinderland Green Covert (SBI)


A medium sized wood for the south Manchester fringe, the wood extends to both sides of the Sinderland brook in part and has a small number of ponds through it. The canopy has had poplar in it which has reached maturity. Also of note is a stand of bamboo that requires edadication. The ponds hold species such as marsh marigold and the long thin nature of the site next to a stream makes the site good for woodland birds.

Habitats: Wetland, Woodland

The site is located along Sinderland Road and straddles Sinderland Brook.

There are 3 parts: South. North and East.
