Radford Meadows are located south of Radford Bridge and is the floodplain of the River Penk. although like most flood plains, it have been drained. Despite drainage, winter conditions still provide excellent habitat for populations of wintering birds including teal, wigeon, lapwing and snipe. During spring, the heronry usually contains more than 20 breeding pairs and as groundwater levels are restored the Trust hopes that other species will return to breed.
