This tranquill nature reserve is bizarrely situated in the centre of Weymouth town. Surrounded by tall reeds and bird-littered lakes, this marshland is the perfect place to go for a walk and connect with nature. You can find some of the abundant wildlife and educate yourself inside the RSPB visitors centre, as well as the lucrative bird hides.
"Radipole Lake is not actually a lake in the accepted sense as it is not completely surrounded by land. It lies near the mouth of the River Wey in Weymouth and has extensive reed beds along with scrapes that have been made to make it more attractive to waders. Despite being in the centre of a large town Radipole is a superb place at any time of the year. In winter there is a wide variety of visiting water fowl, unusual gulls often turn up and it is one of the best places to see the illusive bearded tit. In summer and autumn add flowers and insects (especially good for dragonflies and butterflies) along with nesting species of bird including bittern, marsh harrier, kingfisher and cettis warbler. I have also seen an otter there. "
