The Gunnersbury Triangle Nature Reserve opposite Chiswick Park station in Chiswick, London. 20th December 2010.
Gunnersbury Triangle became one of the London Wildlife Trust's first reserves when it was saved from development by a campaign run by local people. Since the end of the Second World War the woodland here has grown up naturally and the reserve has become a sheltered birch and willow woodland with attractive pond, marsh and meadow. Hidden away, the reserve opens up before you - so follow the nature trail, listening out for birds or the rustle of a hedgehog and look out for the tunnels of field voles or interesting spiders and ladybirds.
