The Little Blue Ducky
  • Spittal Pond is the largest nature reserve in Bermuda and a protected area for animals and plants.
  • The nature reserve is home to many birds such as cardinals, blue herons, and of course, ducks!
  • The Bermuda skink, which is one of the rarest lizards in the whole world also lives at Spittal Pond.
  • The reserve is also where you can find Portuguese Rock which is engraved with the initials “R. P.” This is the earliest record of people in Bermuda and is over 450 years old!
