About Ham Wall
Here you can enjoy a newly created wetland, which provides a safe home for many rare species including water voles and otters. In spring the reedbeds are alive with birdsong and in autumn you can see kingfishers flashing up and down the ditches. Bitterns are seen regularly all year round.
There is disabled access to this reserve by RADAR key, and special tactile signs explaining what is there. Events are held throughout the year for families and for those who want to learn more about wildlife.
Please note that the car park has a 6'6" height restriction.
Open at all times.
Free, but donations to help us continue our work here are welcome.
If you are new to birdwatching...
A good number of events take place through the year, with booking through Meare Manor. These focus on the wildlife of the reserve and are lead by friendly, informative staff and volunteers. Good standard of refreshments are served afterwards, which gives an excellent opportunity for discussion and questions.
