Ancient commons, mentioned in the Domesday Book, with grassland plains, mighty oak woods and serene ponds
Learn how we manage the Bookham habitats to attract wildlife to our designated Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).
Visit us on a warm, sunny day and you’ll see many of our wonderful butterflies fluttering over the commons.
From around April, this area is home to oak processionary moth caterpillars. They can cause skin and eye irritations and breathing difficulties if you or your animals come into contact with them.
Visit the commons at any time of the year and you'll see and hear many of our favourite woodland birds and spot a variety of waterfowl on the ponds.
