Around a lake

Over the water – on the water – and under the water. A few hours at Swanick lakes, once a clay pit for Bursledon brickworks. Today the area is a nature reserve with a mixture of woodland, lakes and meadows. The site is managed by Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wifelife Trust and is spread over 35-hectares.
