Pegsdon Hills and Hoo Bit

One of the jewels of the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Pegsdon Hills offers some of the best views in the county. The steep chalk hills and quiet valleys are full of wildlife, from magnificent displays of orchids and butterflies, to nesting lapwings and circling buzzards. In spring, moschatel, or town-hall-clock, named after the arrangement of its flowers, can be found in the woodland. Other spring highlights include dingy and grizzled skipper butterflies which are now found in only a few places in the county. Spend a while here and a wheatear or ring ouzel may stop off to feed before heading north to breed.

With summer arrives the smell of fresh herbs as you walk through wild thyme, marjoram and wild basil. The melodious song of the skylark follows you around the reserve while you soak up the atmosphere. Stay until after dark and look for the eerie green luminescence of glow-worms emanating from the grassland and glimpse the occasional bat flying overhead.With magnificent views of the surrounding countryside, these neighbouring reserves are a patchwork of chalk grassland, scrub and woodland, steeped in history

Best for- Buzzard, Ring Ouzel (passage) Wheatear
