Families learn about Moor Green Lakes nature reserveBy Laura Herbert
September 18, 2012
Families joined nature experts on a series of free wildlife walks through Moor Green Lakes Nature Reserve.
Visitors were given an insight into future plans for the Manor Farm site, which lies next to the reserve, which is being transformed into a wildlife area with reed beds, scrapes, open water, grassland and woodland.
During the 1980s Moor Green Lakes was a mineral extraction site but, following restoration work, it opened as a nature reserve in 1993.
It has now become one of the premier birding sites in the area, with more than 200 bird species recorded there.
During the event, the Moor Green Lakes Group led walks to some of the restricted areas of the 35-hectare site.
The event was held last month at the reserve in Finchampstead.
