Spring at Arundel

In the reedbeds sedge and reed warblers sing for territory. Lapwings, oystercatchers and black-headed gulls display on the wet grasslands and sparrows start nesting building in the out buildings. Sandpiper stroll near the Ramsar hide and linnets flit along the Tranquil Trail, while butterflies burst forth on sunny days.

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.
