Welcome to the Friends of Stocker's Lake Website
This website is owned and maintained by Friends of Stocker’s Lake (FoSL), a registered charity. FoSL exists to :
- - conserve, safeguard and enhance Stocker's Lake as a Local Nature Reserve
- - help and extend the scope of the work of the warden at Stocker's Lake
- - foster public support for and appreciation of Stocker's Lake as a local nature reserve.
Stocker's Lake, near Rickmansworth just inside the M25, is bordered on one side by the river Colne and on the other by the Grand Union canal. It is a place of great beauty and it supports a huge variety of wildlife, especially birds, particularly winter wildfowl. It is owned by Affinity Water and managed by Herts & Middlesex Wildlife Trust, actively supported by local people who are the Friends of Stocker’s Lake.
Within this website you will find details of organised walks and other events on the reserve, news of interesting recent sightings of birds, details of how to join FoSL for a mere £5 per year, and much more.
