This week we formally opened a new permissive path and other viewing facilities at Fishlake Meadows Nature Reserve.
Since taking on management of the site, staff and volunteers have been working hard on a huge range of habitat improvements works, as well as new access and viewing facilities, including:
- A new, surfaced permissive path into the centre of the reserve (no dogs permitted along this route)
- New viewing screens in the middle of the reserve to see the birds and other wildlife on the water
- Two new viewing platforms along the canal path on the east of the reserve with views across the wetland
- A new surface on the path running west-east across the reserve to help improve accessibility
The improvements were visited by a group of local councillors and partners, including Test Valley Borough Council, Romsey Parish Council and Caroline Nokes MP.
