Find out about how the habitats at Bodenham Lake are maintained, and what is going to be done to enhance them in the future.
Bodenham Lake Nature Reserve is 44.5 hectares (110 acres) of varied habitat including riverside meadows, veteran orchard, newly planted orchard, a 'gravel' area and wet woodland. The lake itself is the largest area of open water in the county.
You can picnic and stroll through beautiful orchards as well as river and lakeside meadows. However, as the lake is an important overwintering and breeding area for birds and other aquatic wildlife, approximately half of the site is managed as a wildlife refuge with restricted public access. A public hide allows you to enjoy views of the birds and other wildlife in the refuge.
