A tiny reserve perched high on a hillside overlooking the Rivelin Valley

Looking out over the hills from Fox Hagg, you can see for miles - over the Rivelin dams and the woods of Wyming Brook further up the valley. The reserve's own varied and dramatic scenery is as stunning as the view, with its patchwork of bilberry, bracken, heather, birch, scrub, woodland and moorland. This huge range of habitats attracts a wide variety of birds including meadow and tree pipits, redstarts and linnets and a number of warblers which flit between the scattered birch and the woodland edge.
