Wicken Fen National Nature Reserve
Wicken Fen provides a window on a 'lost landscape' – a unique remnant of un-drained fenland which once covered the vast lowlands of East Anglia.
Wicken Fen is one of Britain's oldest nature reserves and was the first to be cared for by the National Trust.
Today Wicken Fen, is one of Europe's most important wetlands, home to over 9000 recorded species including many rare species of plants, birds and dragonflies. Throughout the year there's an amazing array of wildlife to see and hear, from booming bitterns and cuckoos in spring, rare orchids and dragonfles in summer, to hen harriers and short-eared owls in winter.
