I freely admit I'm not into bird watching but still thought this would be a nice place to go with the dog, however, whilst I heard a lot of birds I saw very few and I personally found the tall reeds quite claustrophobic. Not for me but bird enthusiasts would love it.

This is a lovely free of charge walk. We are not bird watchers, but go here every time we visit Weymouth for the peaceful surroundings and lovely coffee shop. I would recommend it for families and couples - we do the whole walk right out to the hide. It would be great if some binoculars could be provided (I understand... More

Close views of Marsh Harrier and more. Very close range Cetti's warbler, lovely views, and a lovely quiet walk around the reserve with just bird songs. Must visit!

It's not a massive reserve and can... More

Beautiful nature reserve around Radipole Lake. The visitors' centre is staffed by very friendly and helpful volunteers, and well equipped with binoculars, telescopes and activities for the kids. The reserve itself has been sensitively re-developed with wooden viewing platforms across the reed beds. Amongst many others, look out for Cetti's warblers, sedge and reed warblers, marsh harriers, herons and great... More

This is a good reserve centrally located by a huge carpark. Lots of walking paths in a compact area. Staff at the visitor centre are helpful and knowledgeable.
