Langford Lowfields

Nottinghamshire  >  United Kingdom

A recently established RSPB reserve on a former quarry with extensive reedbeds containing Bearded Tit and Great Bittern.

Added by Josh Hedley


The site is split into three phases with phases 1st and 2nd being the current RSPB reserve whilst the 3rd phase is currently a working quarry which is expected to close at the end of 2020. The site is home to good populations of Cetti's Warbler and Bearded Tit. Recent rarities to the area have included Pallid Harrier and Horned Lark and Great Egret have been frequently recorded.



The reserve is accessed by road from the A1133 down Cottage lane just to the north of the railway crossing near Langford Village. There is small car park at the end of the road. Dogs are allowed on the public footpaths that run around the edges of the site but not within the actual reserve itself.
