Ham Wall Nature Reserve, Glastonbury

(4.9/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
Take a tour of a newly created wetland reserve and go birdwatching at Ham Wall Nature Reserve. The park serves as a sanctuary for many rare bird species, including the bearded tit, bittern, and Cettiā€™s warbler. Part of a larger conservation project that aims to restore natural habitats, the reserve's marshes and abundant ponds also provide homes for water voles and otters. Although entrance is free, the reserve sustains itself with donations from visitors. Bring your binoculars and dress warmly for cold evenings and mornings. Make Ham Wall Nature Reserve a centerpiece of your Glastonbury vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Glastonbury vacation trip planner.
