Radipole Lake Nature Reserve can be found right in the centre of Weymouth and is not only popular with birdwatchers but is also a favourite with families, who keep the swans and resident ducks well fed all year round!
Managed by the RSPB Radipole Lake has a large reedbed, open water and bushes that attract many different species of bird. Bearded Tits and Cetti's Warblers can be seen throughout the year and in summer reed, sedge and grasshopper warblers join them. In winter a walk around the reserve will reveal bitterns, pochard and tufted ducks.
The Visitor Centre is open all year and provides telescopes allowing visitors to view the birdlife over the water. It stocks a range of excellent books and also organises a number of guided walks. For more details call 01305 778313 or see the RSPB website at www.rspb.org.uk
