Field Club members visited this privately owned reserve on 8th July to help provide baseline data as management begins. The site is mostly abandoned apple orchard, with old fruit trees creating dense scrub that is ideal for nesting birds such as turtledoves and nightingales. The site's proximity to Denge means there are woodland plants to be found, but also a large meadow with numerous butterflies and even a small blueberry patch! A particular highlight was the presence of the remarkable Wasp Spider.
