Milham Ford Nature Reserve
This beautiful nature reserve is home to a wide variety of insects and plants. Bees thrive in this environment due to the availability of wildflowers such as watercress, bluebells and pink vetch.
Peasmoor Piece Nature Reserve
This grassland features a small pond. If you are very lucky, you may spot the elusive brown hairstreak butterfly, one of Britain’s rarest butterfly species. They frequent hedgerows and woodland edges from mid-July to mid-September.
