Stenner Woods, Didsbury

Stenner Woods

Adjacent to Fletcher Moss Park and Millgate Fields, Stenner Woods is a small area of wet woodland a remnant of the original Mersey Valley flood plain. Fallen trees and dead wood are generally not removed from the site providing a habitat for invertebrates that in turn provide a food source for birds. This also makes the site an ideal location for wood decomposing fungi.

Although I have only found common species so far sometimes microscopic examination is required to be certain as illustrated in the following article.
