|One of the premier areas for viewing marsh life, this 850-acre marsh is located on County Rd. 20 in Leamington approximately one hour south-west of London and boasts an amazing nature centre and more than 5 kilometres of nature trails that wind through this significant marsh.
The diverse habitats attract marsh, shore and field birds and a nesting pair of Bald Eagles. Over one hundred species of birds use Hillman as a migration stopover. A birding trail borders the managed Shorebird Habitat, where mud flats attract a wide variety of shorebirds, songbirds and waterfowl, including many rare species.
This site provides excellent birding in both spring and fall, or a great family opportunity to discover and enjoy nature. Visit the Shore and Songbird Celebration held annually on Mother’s Day weekend, where experts and novice birders alike can get up close with songbirds during the banding demonstrations.
