Rosliston was one of the first woodlands created within The National Forest. It was planted between 1994 and 1996, creating a combination of broadleaf and conifer woodland surrounding lakes and open grasslands.
Key bird species include tree sparrows, buzzards and a great selection of woodland and farmland small birds. A wide range of dragonflies and damselflies can be found around the Rolls-Royce Greenheart Lake.
Common lizards and grass snakes are among the reptiles and amphibians found on the site. In addition to the wild birds that can be seen at Rosliston, there are also falconry courses available at the Forestry Centre.
