An area of remnant farmland and estate grounds on the edge of Birmingham

Park Hall is an area of remnant farmland and estate grounds on the eastern edge of Birmingham. The reserve supports a diverse range of habitats, including three ancient woodlands, grassland, wetland and a stretch of the River Tame. During spring impressive displays of bluebells, ramsons, yellow archangel and numerous other plants can be seen in the woodlands, while in the farm ponds amphibians including great crested newt, common toad and frog begin to breed. Summer breeding birds include reed bunting, teal, swan and buzzard, while in the evenings bats forage on moths and other insects.
