Northumberland Wildlife Trust's Upland Nature Reserves

Friday 15 November 2019.

With Duncan Hutt, Northumberland Wildlife Trust

The Trust now controls, or shares in the management of, a considerable area of upland Northumberland, covering a variety of habitats including blanket and raised bog, heather heath and the current rewilding project at Kielderhead. The largest reserve (and the largest in England) is Whitelee Moor (over 1,500 ha), and amongst the earliest with Trust involvement are the Border Mires (almost 3,000 ha) within the Forestry Commission’s Kielder Forest. The most recent acquisition is Benshaw Moor (over 250 ha), in Redesdale.

Duncan is Head of Living Landscapes and Conservation at the Trust, where he has worked for over two decades.
