The manageable size of the reserve allows it to be covered easily and all areas can be visited within an hour or two. A suggested walk would start from the car park, heading left along the Chad Brook, checking the feeding station on the way. At the western end of the reserve, the Stan Young wetland area has a group of alder trees nearby, which attract Siskin and Redpoll during many months of the year, to feed on the cones. You could then cross over the stream and follow the ring-walk through the oak woodland to bring you to the highest part of the reserve from where good views across the reserve and over Edgbaston can be enjoyed. Return from the ring-walk via the bridge and the club tool shed to the car park. From there cross the concrete bridge and walk along the brook, where Grey Wagtails may be seen, as far as an area of mixed woodland and scrub, but mostly conifers, adjacent to the Harborne Walkway, for Goldcrest and Coal Tit if you are lucky. Back to the car park via a path across a small wooden bridge and through some allotments.
