Briddlesford Woods is a large block of ancient, semi-natural woodland and is home to a diverse array of wildlife including red squirrels, dormice and rare woodland bats. Some areas of the reserve are open to the public and you are welcome to visit. A particularly good time to visit is in early spring, when the woodland floor is a carpet of bluebells.
Rough Hill is a small, traditional orchard and was purchased by PTES in 2003. It contains around 180 trees and is a haven for invertebrates. In the most recent survey, 13 nationally scarce species were discovered, and one red data book listed species.
Join us at Briddlesford this spring for a Dawn Chorus guided walk. For more details and to book please visit our Wildlife Encounters pages and search under Isle of Wight.
