Whitemoor Haye


Whitemoor Haye

Whitemoor Haye (gbmapping|SK1813) is a mainly agricultural area in the floodplain of the River Tame, near Alrewas in Staffordshire, England.

It is very popular with birdwatchers, as several rare species are either resident or seasonal visitors, notably Corn Bunting.

The remains of several Woolly Rhinoceroses were recovered from a quarry here in 2002 [http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/2375509.stm "'Extraordinary" woolly rhino finds" BBC news] ] .

There is an airfield, for light aircraft such as microlights.
