Spring at Nagshead is an especially good time to visit as you can wander along the trails looking for pied flycatchers, redstarts and species of tits around the nestboxes. Look to the skies for views of ravens, buzzards and sparrowhawks. There are hawfinches and all three British woodpeckers in the woods all year round.
Reserve open at all times, year-round. Reception/information centre (with toilet facilities) open 10 am - 4 pm at weekends only between Easter and August bank holidays inclusive.
None, but donations to help us continue our work here are welcome
Many events are aimed specifically at families, including the reserves open day. Additionally, RSPB/Forestry Commission jointly run Family Fun Days during summer months in wider Forest, including Symonds Yat Rock.
Dogs are only allowed on footpaths under the strictest control and on leads during the bird breeding season.
Note: Some reserves are not served directly by public transport and, in these cases, a nearby destination (from which you may need to walk or take a taxi or ferry) may be offered.
