Butterdean Wood Dedication

In October 2020, Fidra lost a much-loved colleague and friend, Jasper Hamlet.

Jasper was an exceptional and talented young man, and his loss is felt profoundly. His wonderful connection with nature through his wood carving and beautiful spoon making, love of the outdoors and wildlife, his dedication to his work and his living of these values will stay with us all.

This lovely section of broadleaved woodland at Butterdean is dedicated from his friends and colleagues at Fidra to Jasper’s memory.  We welcome all to enjoy this place of quiet reflection, it’s waymarked trails, and the animal and plant species this diverse habitat supports. Nest and roost boxes have been erected in this area to give bats and birds additional places to live, to ensure Jasper’s place is thriving with nature, in the way he would have loved.

The woodland at Butterdean is managed by our friends at Woodland Trust.
