Ladywalk Reserve sits in a loop formed by the River Tame. This reserve is an integral part of the important wildlife area known as the Tame Valley Wetlands.
The 50 hectare site features woodland, wetlands, reed beds and pools, which are the result of flooded gravel extraction workings, and the River Tame flows around three sides of the reserve. The range of habitats is particularly attractive to birds and over 200 species have been recorded.
The large area of reedbed has become an important feature not just to this reserve but to the whole Tame Valley. Wintering Eurasian bittern are frequent visitors and the reserve has been identified as one of the best sites in the country to observe this bird.
Ladywalk Reserve is owned by E.ON and is leased to and managed by the WMBC.
