About the reserve
This reserve consists of a fairly typical area of western heathland, a component of which is western gorse, which flowers in late summer. The whitethroat is a common summer visitor, living in scrubs and overgrown hedgerows. Merlin, hen harrier and peregrins all visit this reserve during winter months
