About the reserve
More than 80 species of wildflower have been found on this small nature reserve, with several hundred Green-winged Orchids blooming in May. The reserve also supports patches of Adder’s-tongue Fern, an uncommon species in the UK.
The wonderful display of Orchids are followed by a profusion of Yellow-rattle and the prominent spikes of Black Knapweed, attracting a whole variety of butterfly species.
