About the reserve

At Southorpe Paddock a raised area runs through the middle of the reserve and supports a diverse range of wildflowers. In the summer months the banks are covered with the purple and pink flowers of clustered bellflower and harebell, as well as the notable pyramidal orchid.

Look out for the marbled white butterfly and spotted flycatcher in summer.
