Avon Wildlife Trust
Hidden away in the middle of a housing estate; a small wooded dingle sheltering a stream
On either side of the stream are small wooded areas of hazel, oak and sycamore trees. Most of the reserve is mature scrub of hawthorn and elder, which provides an important home for birds such as wren, greenfinch and spotted flycatcher. Many butterflies can also be seen here in the more open areas of scrub and grassland, including small tortoiseshell, peacock and speckled wood. Foxes are also known to frequent the valley.
