Calvert Jubilee Nature Reserve

Calvert Jubilee Nature Reserve is a BBOWT (Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust) nature reserve that was once an old clay extraction pit for the brick industry. Over the last 50 years, the 200 hectare standing open water habitat has become a haven for large numbers of over-wintering wildfowl and waders. The reed beds provide ideal habitat for the scarcely seen bittern, and the nutrient poor clay-capped land around the lake provides the right conditions for wildflowers and good numbers of rare butterflies including the grizzled and dingy skippers.
An excellent site for common and woodland birds including green woodpecker and migrants including nightingale (above) and turtle dove.
