Autumn at Arundel

Barer trees make kingfishers easier to spot; water voles are fattening up for winter; the first of the winter migrants land, including tufted duck, pochard and mallard and, sometimes, 100 or more Canada geese. Numbers of wintering wildfowl start to increase like teal, gadwall, shoveler and shelduck.

Nature reserve

Arundel’s lakes, reed beds, channels and waterfalls can support a rich array of British wildlife favourites as well as a large and varied collection of international wildfowl.
