About the reserve
The site is surrounded by mature hedges which are good for birds and butterflies.
Local children planted a small woodland when the reserve was established, mainly oak and ash, and for variety, some poplar, elder, willow and field maple were added.
A wildflower meadow is also showing some signs of success - common spotted orchid has been found growing here. The meadow is cut for hay every summer.
The reserve is owned by Easton-in-Gordano Parish Council and leased to the Trust.
