Chapel Wood RSPB Reserve

Chapel Wood RSPB Reserve

For such a small area, Chapel Wood has an impressive variety of birds. Regular nesting species include tawny owl (pictured) , nuthatch, plus great spotted and green woodpecker. Pied flycatcher occasionally nest and raven have also nested here. Red deer, brown hares and badgers visit the wood and rare dormice live here. The soils of Chapel Wood are rather acidic which can limit the variety of wild flowers, although bluebells, primroses and foxgloves provide a splash of colour.

Management consists largely of the gradual removal of non-native species planted during the last century and their replacement with native trees. About 1 hectare of native oak trees has been planted. The RSPB keep standing dead timber as long as it presents no danger to visitors.

This small reserve is a mixed woodland with the remains of an old hill fort and an historic chapel with a well. The nature reserve is in a remote location.Click here for further information...
