Lower Lough Erne Islands Reserve in County Fermanagh is the most westerly of all RSPB reserves in the UK. You'll find over 40 islands on this large freshwater lake, home to an array of Lapwings, Curlews, Snipe and a unique inland colony of breeding Sandwich Terns.

Many of the islands are managed as lowland wet grassland meadows or broadleaf woodland sites. A species-rich hay meadow can be found at Lowery Farm, and a large area of forestry at Castle Caldwell.

Take a leisurely stroll around the forest trails and look across to some of the islands, which make up most of the reserve. In the summer, you can visit two of the islands – North Island and Lusty More – by boat.
