RSPB Blean Woods Reserve

This is a wonderful place for quiet walks in beautiful ancient woodland. There are five trails of up to eight miles long that meander through the woods. Some are wheelchair and pushchair friendly, but take care on others, which can be muddy after rain. In summer, look out for damselflies, dragonflies and butterflies, including the rare heath fritillary butterfly. As dusk falls, you may see nightjars gliding on silent wings, and hear their churring call. Listen also for woodpeckers and nightingales.
Car park open from 8 am to 9 pm. Access on foot at all times.
Free, but donations to help us continue our work here are welcome.
