Enjoy a circular walk around Belvide Reservoir in South Staffordshire on this easy route. It's a great place for bird watching with bittern, goldeneye, pochard, shoveller and tufted duck to look out for on the water.
The reservoir has a car park at the south eastern end, near Shutt Green. You can then pick up footpaths along the southern end of the water before heading north through the countryside to the Shropshire Union Canal. You can then follow the towpath back to Shutt Green.
To extend your walk you could follow the canal south into Wolverhampton or north towards Gnossal Heath. The long distance Staffordshire Way also passes through the area so this is another good option.
