RSPB Swell Wood, A378, Taunton TA3 6PX

The ancient oaks of Swell Wood are part of a continuous strip of woodland extending some 10 miles (15 km) along the ridge from Langport to the Blackdown Hills. It has the largest colony of breeding grey herons in south-west England – more than 100 pairs and a small number of little egrets nest here. You can explore our two nature trails and hide, which are open at all times.
