Important notice

Langford Lowfields is still, in part, a working quarry. Therefore, there is strictly no access beyond fence boundaries within the reserve.

Top things to do in Spring

  1. Listen to the cacophony of reedbed noises with warblers, cuckoos, water rails and reed buntings
  2. Witness the ever-changing restoration as new reeds and wildflowers spread across changing landscapes
  3. Watch marsh harriers quarter the reedbed in the day whilst barn owls take over as the evening draws in

Top things to do in Summer

  1. See the breeding little ringed plovers and avocets chase each other across the watery habitat
  2. With over 20 species of butterflies, stroll amongst the bountiful painted ladies and brimstones along flower-rich grassy paths
  3. Enjoy the warm late summer evenings with panoramic sunsets across the golden reedbed

Top things to do in Autumn

  1. Dragonflies will be emerging en masse from the wetland landscape with numerous hobbies darting back and forth in hot pursuit
  2. Fox cubs and roe deer fawns will be finding their feet in the grassland scrub
  3. Passage waders begin to drop in, with godwits, redshanks, sandpipers and dunlins all topping up on vital food

Top things to do in Winter

  1. Stroll along the woodland path past hedgerows full of redwings and fieldfares gorging on berries
  2. Catch a precious glimpse of an elusive bittern flying over the reeds and into secretive pools
  3. Look out for barn owls and short-eared owls as they quarter the grasslands around the reedbeds
