Ravensthorpe Nature & Wildlife
Our Victorian reservoir is home to an abundance of wildlife and is enjoyed by many people who love the relaxed, peaceful atmosphere, and access to nature, that we offer.
Ideal for birdwatchers, both casual and keen ornithologists can get up close to the many bird species that visit our site including smew, goldeneye, shoveler, widgeon and goosander along with great white egrets in winter and osprey curlew, green and common sandpiper and Mediterranean gulls appearing in spring and autumn.
Eagle-eyed visitors will also be able to spot otters who feed on the reservoir’s roach and crayfish population as well as badgers, red foxes and muntjac deer. Seven species of bat also make our reserve their home.
