Relax in a day's birding at Langford Lakes

Salisbury, Wiltshire

Open bodies of water are a rarity in south Wiltshire, making Langford Lakes nature reserve an attractive stopping-off point for a host of wild birds.

Owned by Wiltshire Wildlife Trust, Langford Lakes is made up of three lakes, meadows and the River Wylye forming part of its border.

Throughout the winter, shoveler and widgeon arrive to join the resident ducks. One of the UK’s most endangered and elusive birds, the bittern, has occasionally been seen creeping silently through the reeds at the water’s edge in the dark winter days as well.

Work undertaken by the Trust has made the river an excellent home for salmon, brown trout and grayling. Recently, otter and water vole have been spotted in and around the river so perhaps you’ll be lucky enough to see one too.
