NWT North Muskham Lake

This nature reserve is a restored sand and gravel quarry and attracts a wide range of wildlife including snipe, reed warbler and sand martin.

With the River Trent running along the eastern boundary, this six hectare wetland reserve is a restored sand and gravel quarry.

Recent restoration work to reprofile the banks of the lake and to create areas of grassland and shallows will ensure that the reserve is attractive to a wide range of wildlife. Here it is possible to see species of wading bird, reed bunting and sedge warbler. Winter is the best time to visit as bird numbers are increased dramatically by overwintering visitors. Plans to increase public access are also underway.


North Muskham Lake reserve is accessible from Manor House Drive, off Main Street, North Muskham (SK797592).
