About the reserve
Part of the former Bourne-Saxby railway line, the reserve consists of two deep cuttings and the land over the 300m long tunnel. The mixture of scrub and open areas with species-rich grassland provides a diverse range of habitats.
Whitethroat and willow warbler are regular nesting species, while in winter there are often large numbers of fieldfare and redwing. 21 species of butterfly have been recorded.
