The Withey Beds Local Nature Reserve
The Withey Beds Local Nature Reserve is a small wetland site (7.7ha) in Rickmansworth. In fact it is one of a few remaining wetlands in Hertfordshire. It is particularly important as it supports a wide range of habitats including wet woodland, marsh, drier grassland and open ditches as well as the River Colne. It is this diversity which provides an ideal habitat for many species, including several invertebrates of high national importance and a variety of bird life.
