A closed reserve featuring two lakes, three open meadows and a mixed broadleaved wood, the reserve forms part of the 25 hectare Renscault and Ballachrink Bird Sanctuary.
We look after 24 nature reserves across the island with the help of a dedicated band of volunteers. 7 of these are open to the public.
This closed reserve is an area of woodland that attracts a fantastic number of birds.
A woodland with waterfalls and a riverside walk, spring sees a great display of flowers.
A boardwalk runs through the willow scrub, there's an abundance of mosses and lichens and a bird hide too.
The reserve attracts a wide range of birds, butterflies, dragonflies and bats.
This closed reserve is a hay meadow rich in flowers during both Spring and Summer
Previously a mill pond, a small haven for wildlife has been created in this otherwise urban landscape
