Spring at Arundel

Willow warblers, chiffchaff and blackcap sing for territory and in the reedbeds you’ll hear sedge and reed warblers. Lapwings, oystercatchers and black-headed gulls nest on the wet grasslands and sparrows start nesting in the out buildings. Look for sandpipers from the Ramsar hide, linnets along the Tranquil Trail and a burst of butterflies everywhere on sunny days.

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.
