Tunstall Reservoir

Follow the footpath around this pretty reservoir and nature reserve near Wolsingham in Country Durham. It's a lovely place for an easy stroll with species rich woodland on the eastern side of the reservoir and a nature reserve at the northern end. Look out for a variety of birdlife including Great rested grebe, tufted duck, goosander, moorhen, coot, mallard and common sandpiper. Butterflies are also common in the reserve. Look out for admiral, small tortoiseshell, peacock and meadow brown.
The whole of this circular route is designed for walkers but cyclists can enjoy the lovely country lane on the western side of the reservoir too.
