About the reserve
This fascinating reserve contains a variety of habitats, including nationally rare wet woodlands, marsh and old grazing pastures. It also has the county's largest remaining fragment of a fenland system that once covered much of the local landscape. It is home to an amazing array of wildlife and boasts many unusual plants such as twayblade and marsh stitchwort. The site is believed to be one of the best in the county for bird species.
