In the spring look out for bluebells and listen to the birds singing, maybe you will hear your first cuckoo here.
It is also a good place to see common twayblade numerous in certain areas on the reserve. Now is also a good time to admire some of the fabulous large beech trees on site.
In the summer the sunny paths are great for butterflies so keep an eye out for a silver-washed fritillary or white admiral. Streams attract dragonflies and damselflies, so look out for maybe a blue-tailed or large red damselfly or an emperor dragonfly.
Later in the year, look out for fungi which will start to appear as it gets damper.
