Oak woodlands are one of the most wildlife-rich habitats in Britain and Strawberry Cottage Wood is no exception. With its large mature oak and ash trees and an understorey of hazel, it is a haven for wildlife.

In spring, the woods are full of birdsong as pied flycatchers, blackcaps and redstarts flit amongst the canopy. The floor is carpeted with bluebells, primroses, yellow archangel and violets. In warm weather, the woodland glades are visited by dancing butterflies. You might not see them, but the woods are also home to badgers, stoats and the elusive hazel dormouse. As you cross the footbridge to the entrance of the reserve, it's worth having a look along the river for the flash of a kingfisher or the dippers bobbing and diving under the water. Otters are also known to fish here.
