Project Nature reserve

Rye Meads is a delightful wetland reserve beside the River Lee, a favourite with walkers, birdwatchers and photographers alike. There are hides that look out over the reed beds, wet meadows, open water and artificial sandbanks, which are apparently a great place to spot the blue flash of a kingfisher.


The visitor centre is powered with electricity contributed by their solar photovoltaic system which is fitted over the membrane roof with an incredibly low profile so as not to minimise the visual impact on this wildlife area.
