As 'investors in wildlife' through the trust we were invited to a good day out at Testwood Lakes. This splendid 150 acre site is 10 years old, buiilt by Southern Water alongside an abstraction and pumping station it has a number of lakes. One large area is dedicated to wildlife and set up with scrapes, tern islands, a sand martin wall etc - no dogs allowed in this section!
We heard about the development of the site and had a guided tour. A brisk walk and a lunch.
