Dyscarr Wood: The 17 hectares reserve is a fine example of ash/wych elm woodland developed on Magnesian Limestone soil. Much of the wych elm has been affected by Dutch Elm Disease and other trees include birch, sycamore and oak. The shrub layer contains abundant hazel and hawthorn together with field maple, dogwood, privet and blackthorn. In wetter areas alder and crack willow are common. The wood contains a number of plants which indicate its ancient origins. These include sweet woodruff, ramsons, yellow archangel and wood melick. Species such as dogs mercury, enchanters nightshade, hedge woundwort and sanicle can also be found. Some areas contain twayblade, broad-leaved helleborine, primrose, early purple orchid, wood anemone and common spotted orchid.

About 50 species of birds have been recorded, including green, greater spotted and lesser spotted woodpeckers, sparrowhawk, little owl and tawny owl.
