Lodmoor Nature Reserve
Here is a 'virtual' tour of this site to give you an idea of what to expect if you visit:
Lodmoor is a mixture if scrapes and reed beds, ideal for water-loving birds
A network of well made paths make much of the reserve accessible
The central reed bed is not accessible of course but much the open water can be seen
Primarily considered a winter site for visiting waders and wildfowl
The reed beds provide interest all year round with warblers singing in summer and sheltering birds in winter
In summer it has lots of wild flowers and an abundance if insects
The paths, especially, are lined with flowers in spring, summer and autumn
... but for bird lovers it has to be the scrapes and the reed beds that are the attraction.
