Monkwood Butterfly Reserve
63 acres of ancient woodland, jointly owned by Butterfly Conservation and the Worcestershire Wildlife Trust.
Coppicing is undertaken in various parts, rides have been widened and glades created, particularly at junctions. This led to initial increases in rare species like the Wood White.
Interesting plants include small-leaved lime, wild service tree, lily-of-the-valley, spurge laurel, and broad-leaved and violet helleborine. There are also several ponds with great crested newts.
Butterflies: Wood White, Dingy Skipper, Purple Hairstreak, Silver-washed Fritillary, White Admiral.
