About the reserve
This is a delightful oak woodland with two streams and a quarry. The oak coppice is characteristic of many Cornish woods. It is an exceptional area for woodland birds, including the nuthatch, who runs up and down trees when looking for nuts, seeds and insects. Tawny owls can also be seen here, as well as pipistrelle.
