Warnham Reserve's butterfly ride

Great Tit, Parus major at Warnham viewing pool
I recently visited to Rewell Wood and Warnham Nature Reserve, where there is a great new pool at the feeder hide at viewing height. You have to wait patiently for a bird to come down. They have prepared a ride for woodland butterflies which will hopefully benefit from the work.
