A visit to this reserve was recommended by a volunteer from the RSPB. We were told that it was full of wildlife including wild boar. Whilst on our visit we were fortunate to see a female wild boar and her seven babies, an experience we shall never forget. It was magical and we would all highly recommend a visit.

Beautiful and peaceful place; a lovely walk, some information boards and a free guide. There's a visitor centre, but it wasn't open. This place is rather under-marketed; we've been to the Forest many times, but this was our first visit to RSPB Nagshead as we didn't know it existed until I came across it on online.
