Jubilee Lake comes to life with a superb display of Wild Garlic and Bluebells. Watch out as you walk around the lake for other flowers and enjoy the springtime birdsong.

Feeding birds dominate the site and an evening walk will reveal bats searching for insects.
Resident birds are still around but quiet. At night it is possible to hear Tawny Owls calling from within the valley.
