569 Moore Nature Reserve

With five lakes, woodland, reedbeds and wetland, as well as numerous bird hides, Moore Nature Reserve is a birdwatcher's heaven. Butterflies, dragonflies, orchids and one of the best displays we've ever seen of bird's-foot-trefoil, complete the picture. And on top of all that - it's a great walk.
