The Friends of Lavell’s Lake (FOLL) aim to improve, protect and preserve for the benefit of the public the countryside and wildlife at Lavell’s Lake and surrounding area, and to advance public education in the conservation of the countryside and wildlife. FOLL welcomes volunteers that undertake regular conservation work, runs guided walks, and has a new access path for wheelchairs and mobility scooters.
Lavell’s Lake is at the northern most part of Dinton Pastures Country Park (DPCP). The area includes Phragmites reed beds, sedges, grass areas, coppiced scrub and hedgerows.
Atlas surveys in 2007-2011 showed this to be one of the three richest sites for bird species in Berkshire in both summer and winter, with an impressive 125 species recorded in the breeding seasons since records began in 1979 and 108 in winter.
