About the reserve
A small flat birch dominated woodland with a good circular path around it, the site has a public footpath running immediately past the entrance as well as connecting path running from the Trans Pennine way. The site has a large count of bramble species (14) and a varied ground flora that includes remote sedge, bluebell, wood avens and dog rose. The woodland is very good for fungi with candle snuff fungus, fly agaric and common puff ball amongst the fruiting bodies seen. Butterflies include speckled wood, brimstone and peacock whilst the normal array of birds common to such habitat can also be found such as long-tailed tit, jay, wren and treecreeper.
