A Wildlife Reserve In Busy London

Woodberry Wetlands in the Borough of Hackney in London was created by Thames Water and London Wildlife Trust on the site of a working water reservoir, originally constructed in 1833. The reserve is home to a variety of wildlife, among it kingfishers, reed warblers, wrens, bees and dragonflies. This calm oasis in the centre of the bustling city opens to the public for the first time this Sunday, on May 1st.
