You have to take it as it comes, sometimes you see nothing of note and other times you get to see a lot of interesting birds. We saw our first Water Rail here and several times again since. Regular Kingfishers and Marsh Harriers. There are Bearded Tits & Otters too but we haven't been lucky enough to see them yet,... More

Good, for seeing all kinds of birds... A quiet place to de-stress . Suitable for wheelchairs, also has a shop plus viewing area. Lots of information on what to see, helpful staff.

Beautiful reed beds, a good network of paths and vantage-points. I was there 90 minutes but would happily have spent longer.

Visited both Radipole Lake And Lodmoor over the weekend. Luke Phillips RSPB visitor Information Officer , greeted us and made us feel very welcome. Clearly a lot of improvements have been made to thr reserve since my last visit. Only down side was the state of the information centres roof which looks areal mess as it is still being re.thatched

An amazing place right in the middle of Weymouth. Teeming with birds, and with easy to follow trails through the reed beds. The visitors' centre has fantastic views across the water, with a telescope and helpful staff, and a board lists recent sightings. The centre also has a small tea room, and sells seed to feed the friendly ducks. We... More

We live only an hour away, but usually steer clear of Weymouth. Having found this gem of a place, almost by chance, we would definitely visit again in different seasons. A Sunday morning, and the staff were very welcoming and informative. Lots of fascinating birds to watch and photograph
