My second visit in a week to this gem of a nature reserve. It is obvious that this reserve is very well maintained for the wildlife that is finding it so difficult to survive in the surrounding area. The flora in the wood is always wonderful in spring time and the song of the Nightingale still fills the air and the hearts of those fortunate enough to hear it. A tranquil haven for all to enjoy.

This reserve is small and therefore best suited for the young. It offers opportunities to photographers to shoot birds, small mammals and butterflies. Deers if you are very lucky, but I have been twice and managed onliy to catch some butterfly pictures. Probably my fault.
It’s nice for an hour’s wander. I was amused to read on an earlier visit when I was seeking information, that the on site office was permanently closed “to enhance service to the public”!

Stopped here to kill an hour whilst journeying elsewhere. Didn't take an hour to walk around, only 30 minutes at most not a lot to see, although the time of year had probably had something to do with it. I have been to better kept nature reserves, shame really.

As this is the head quarters of West Sussex Wildlife Trust maybe I was expecting too much. The path ways are very good and if anyone has trouble walking the land is fairly flat with plenty of places to sit. Children will enjoy this, take nets and buckets to dip the lake and see the bugs you can find. On the lakes only a couple of moorhens and chicks. Very peaceful.
