Another place not to be missed. The wildlife and the young birds are wonderful to see. Also a good place for the disabled to visit
Each time I visit Weymouth I make sure go to the nature reserve but on this recent visit it was as if the whole standard had dropped there was only one bird watching telescope and the staff spent more time talking among themselves.
Before you enter the Nature Trail there is a visitor centre which is well worth a visit. It gives information on what to look for on your walk. Signposted trails are designed for walkers and wheelcharis alike and surfaced with concrete or crushed stone. Off the main path is the Buddleia Trail, a circular trail that starts and ends on... More
You need to pay to park your car as the carpark is not RSPB. Staff at visitor centre were very friendly. This is only a small visitor centre with limited facilities but is obviously well used by local school children as there were lots of drawings etc on display.
