Discover Radipole Lake - with a focus on invetebrates
Nestled in the centre of Weymouth, the reedbeds of Radipole Lake are an unlikely urban home to some stunning wildlife.
Discover Radipole Lake is an opportunity to take a walk around the wonderful Radipole Lake nature reserve, lead by an RSPB guide. Happening every other week on Saturday mornings, this is a perfect way to discover the wildlife on Weymouth's doorstep and immerse yourself in all that nature has to offer.
Join us for an 1 hour and a half guided walk around the reserve, as we admire the sights and sounds of the wetlands, the tuneful calls of birdsong and the soft movement of the reeds. Watch out for glimpses of Radipole Lake's birdlife or even one of our resident small mammals.
This week we will be focusing on the inverebrates found at Radipole. We'll talk about and look for butterflies, dragonflies, damselflies and much more!
New to nature? This is an introductory level walk, aimed at beginners but open to all. Whether you are local to Weymouth or visiting the area, we would love for you to join us as we take a walk to Discover Radipole Lake.
Older children welcome.
