“Great way to spend an afternoon”
Reviewed June 21, 2013 via mobile

We had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon at the reserve, after a look in the visitor centre we headed out on the short walk suitable for my wheelchair. It was a beautiful day, lovely to see all the cygnets, ducklings and baby coots. We then got some duck food and stood on the bridge feeding, very funny. We then went back in the visitor centre for a cuppa before leaving. I would thoroughly recommend a visit.

“Great afternoon out”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Liked the location almost in the town and obviously being used by locals as well as RSPB members. Well looked after despite some dog use by unaware visitors. Good birdwatching and very convenient location. Loads of seagulls, one of which 'christened' our car - so a lucky day all in all!

“Interesting wetland reserve”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

We always have a least one wander around the reserve when we are in the area. It is a pleasant walk around. The staff in the RSPB are very good and informative and will help you identify anything you've seen, and talk about the subject in general.

“Oasis of calm”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

We spent a lovely morning walking around the lake which was wonderful, full of ducks, coots swans, cygnets, herons, and wild flowers. There are several hides for more serious bird watchers and the ground is easy going, no hills! We stopped and had a cream tea at the cafe which sits on the edge of the lake with a huge viewing window. The staff were very friendly and keep a board on which they log the various they see that day. Would certainly revisit.

“Flying again”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

As a Weymouth born lad of 60+ Lodmoor has always held a fascination for me and I am now so thankful that billy Butlin got the bum's rush when he tried to bring his holiday horror show to this site in the 1960's
Odd to thin the inland section of the reserve was an airfield in the 1920's and received the first airplane ever to fly off of a boat under power out in Weymouth Bay
