Dogs are welcome, but please keep them under close control and clean up after your dog.
The three key heathland birds: woodlark, nightjar and tree pipit, all nest on the ground. This makes them vulnerable to disturbance by dogs running free. The birds see dogs as predators, whatever the size and harmless character of the dog and can abandon their nests resulting in the loss of eggs and chicks. It is essential for visitors to keep dogs on a lead or on the path from March to September.
