About the reserve

Managed on behalf of the famous golf club, Wentworth nature reserve comprises a good area of dry heath with ling, dwarf gorse and bell heather, as well as a valley bog and a woodland of pine and birch.

Areas of open water support a variety of dragonfly species including the uncommon keeled skimmer and small red damselfly.

Typical plants of wet heath and bog can be found, including cross-leaved heath and tussocks of purple moor grass, cotton-grass, sundew and bog mosses.

Birds such as the tree pipit, yellow hammer and woodlark are also present.
