                                                                        Tice’s Meadow Nature Reserve

Tice’s Meadow is a newly developed nature reserve on the site of the former Farnham Quarry, located between Badshot Lea and Tongham in Surrey, on the southern outskirts of Aldershot.

The habitats on site consist of a mosaic of open water, gravel islands and scrapes, reedbeds, scrub, woodland, ephemeral ponds and wet and dry grassland.

The site is widely considered one of the best inland sites to watch birds in the southeast of England.

Join Surrey Hills Society, Surrey Choices Growth Team and Tice’s Meadow Bird Group on a Friday work party to cut willow from reed beds and help with the management of this special nature reserve.
