About the reserve
East Blean Wood is one of the richest of all Kent's woodland habitats. Situated on poorly drained underlying clay, this reserve can be quite muddy in inclement weather. Where the soil is acidic, bluebells and heather are abundant and in alkialine areas species such as spurge laural and common spotted orchids occur. Fungi is abundant in autumn and birdlife includes common woodland species
