Hagbourne Copse

UK»England»Wiltshire»Hagbourne Copse

Valuable piece of ancient woodland situated on the edge of Swindon, featuring oak, ash and hazel. Visit in late April-early May, when the spectacular display of bluebells fills the copse with an unforgettable scent, or in autumn for fungi. Follow the circular trail through the wood. As well as the bluebells, Hagbourne Copse has flowers such as wood anemone and early purple orchid. Rich birdlife includes the great spotted woodpecker, long-tailed tit and sparrowhawk.
