Water birds

Last weekend brought reports of a mute swan and mallards flying over the reserve.

Swans will sometimes pause their journey to graze in Lambrok Meadow, usually in the early morning, and mallards have been seen on the pond but the reserve doesn’t have enough open water to attract resident water birds.

When we see them, they are travellers on their way to or from the Avon or the Kennet and Avon Canal. They treat the reserve as a service station: somewhere to rest and refuel.

We are happy to oblige: have a nice day!
