What you might see

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.
