I am a member of Yorkshire Wildlife Trust so I had a conversation with 
them about their reserves a few years ago. They sent me some data. It 
was entirely based on OS data, so I couldn't use any of it in OSM. I 
surveyed North Cave wetlands, a large reserve close to me. You can see 
my efforts here https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=16/53.7846/-0.6634 
Most of the names are from my own knowledge.

I think each trust is independent, with a loose affiliation to the 
national group.

I've added one or two smaller reserves in outline that I have visites 
with a few lakes and woods as you would expect. It can sometimes be hard 
to know the extent of a reserve just from aerial imagery and surveys can 
be awkward because the sites usually want people to stay on paths to 
avoid wildlife disturbance.
