Wildlife and Birdwatching

Wildlife and birdwatching

All our sites offer something different when it comes to wildlife and birdwatching.

Our reservoirs and lakes are home to a rich variety of wildlife from elusive otters living on the Bleadon Levels to the pipistrelle and daubenton bats who you can spot feeding at dawn at Backwell Lake.

Whatever time of year you visit one of our reservoirs and lakes, you can experience and enjoy the natural world in all its beauty.
