    Here is a 'virtual' tour of this site to give you an idea of what to expect if you visit:

    Upton Heath is where Poole ends and nature begins

    An extensive are of wet heathland seems to have saved this large area from development

    There is dry heath too which is where the reptiles on the site have thrived

    Bleak in winter but becomes much greener as spring comes along

    As with most dry heath the soil is very sandy which can make access difficult for some

    A redundant railway runs through the southern part of the reserve and this is more wooded

    ... and there also some ponds in this area of the reserve

    There are information boards
