Willen Lakes

Willen lake

Situated half a mile from Junction 14 M1 Milton Keynes, Willen lake is split in two by the A509 Parkway and is encircled by footpaths.The North Lake has a specially constructed wader scrape that can be viewed from a hide next to the weir that seperates the two lakes.It is also the site for a large regular winter gull roost that has produced Mediterranean and little gull as well as Glaucous and Iceland gull. In 1993 a pair of Black-winged Stilt attempted to breed, and the site has produced some of Buckinghamshires rarest birds including Caspian and Whiskered tern.
