Kingfisher Trail - Viewpoint  L

Birdhide by the Lake
You will find lots of Stinging Nettles next to the gate which leads from the river bank to the birdhide. These plants, which are painful to us, are the only food plant of two of our most beautiful butterflies the Peacock and the Small Tortoishell. This birdhide gives us the opportunity to watch water birds at close hand.
