Brush Hill Wildlife Walks

2 short circular walks around Brush Hill Local Nature Reserve. This reserve, managed by the Chiltern Society is next to Whiteleaf Hill on the Chiltern escarpment. It is a fascinating mixture of woodland with wonderful autumn colour, hedgerows and grassland abounding in wild flowers such as bluebells, wood anemone, cowslips, orchids. There are butterflies such as the marbled white, common blue, brimstone and orange tip and glow worms. It is also a great place to spot birds. There are fantastic views right across to the Berkshire Downs.
