DESCRIPTION

Nagshead is a woodland reserve, located on the western edge of Parkend, in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, and is home to RSPB Nagshead

Spring at Nagshead is an especially good time to visit as you can wander along the trails looking for pied flycatchers, redstarts and species of tits around the nestboxes. Look to the skies for views of ravens, buzzards and sparrowhawks. There are hawfinches and all three British woodpeckers in the woods all year round.


Visitor Centre open at weekends and Bank Holidays from Easter to August ONLY
