Linwood Warren: The flora and fauna of the reserve are rich and varied. All three heathers (bell heather, cross-leaved heath and ling) occur, and there are damp areas rich in mosses and lichens - including the Iceland moss, a rare northern upland species which is a relict here on a lowland heath. Twenty-one species of butterfly and well over 200 moths have been recorded. Water shrew and badger occur, as well as adder, grass snake, slow worm and common lizard. Of the 70 or so species of birds recorded over 30 are known to have bred. Notable among these are woodcock, tawny owl, green and great spotted woodpeckers, sparrowhawk, tree pipit, redstart and grasshopper warbler. Crossbill, snipe and lesser spotted woodpecker have also been seen on the reserve.


There is also a Waymarked Route.
