Allerthorpe Common Nature Reserve
Bees buzzing around sweet smelling purple spikes of heather, a green woodpecker ‘yaffling’ from the woodland edge, an adder shyly slithering into the undergrowth below prickly coconut-scented gorse bushes – all make up the sights, sounds and smells of Allerthorpe Common. The reserve is visited by roe deer, badgers and foxes. It is particularly rich in reptile, amphibian and invertebrate species.
