Langford Lakes

Langford Lakes is a great place to watch and learn about wildlife, especially birds

Langford Lakes is a stunning nature reserve combining the lake area providing a wonderful habitat for birds and a half-mile stretch of the wildlife-rich River Wylye. There are five bird-watching hides overlooking the lakes, providing good close views of the regular species of wildfowl. There are chances of rarities too, especially during the spring and autumn migrations.
