About the reserve

St Clair’s Meadow nature reserve is home to a rich variety of wildlife. During the summer kingfishers may be seen flying overhead, and if you look carefully you may see signs of the resident water voles. Beautiful clouds of demoiselles, golden ring dragonflies and a myriad of butterflies adorn the skies, making St Clair’s a wonderful location for the amateur entomologist. It also attracts migratory swifts and swallows, which sweep through the air, feeding on the rich insect life the meadow supports.

During the cold months of winter, migratory birds such as snipes can be seen around the River Meon, which winds gracefully through the meadow.

Perfect for frosty winter walks and spring strolls, this nature reserve is a place of stunning natural beauty all year round.
