Blackbrook Nature Reserve

Welcome to Black Brook.
as you can see by the welcoming poster, this is a large Staffordshire Wildlife Trust Reserve, in fact it is their largest to date and unfortunately we arrived quite late in the day, so didn't have much time to explore it.


We did find time to walk up to Gib Torr, and take in the spactacular scenery.

                                         While we were up on the rocks we could hear the curlew on the moors and we saw a green hairstreak butterfly - my first ever so even though it was a wind blown fly pass, it was very special!




This is somewhere I need to return to and explore more
