La Rue des Bergers

La Rue des Bergers, Castel, GY5 7LL


This small reserve is hidden away on a corner of La Rue des Bergers and is part of the larger Grande Mare/La Clare Mare area. It was a wet, overgrown meadow, which had a large pond dug in it in 1993 to attract wetland birds. This has been very successful, and there are two hides on the site, as well as barn owl and kestrel nest boxes, which are regularly used. A smaller, shallow pond has been created recently, with the aim of attracting more dragonflies, as this is probably the best area in the island for these fascinating insects.
