About the reserve

The reserve section of this old railway track consists of a cutting and an embankment. Blackthorn and hawthorn scrub provide nest sites for blackcap, whitethroat and lesser whitethroat. In winter seed supplies attract flocks of finches and there is a large thrush roost. The commoner butterflies are also abundant. Control of scrub and maintenance of open grassy areas are the main management aims.
