Spring Delights of Lakenheath Fen RSPB Reserve

Friday 31st May 2024

We spend the day at Lakenheath Fen RSPB reserve, where in spring we expect to see and hear booming Eurasian Bitterns and Common Cuckoos calling in the poplar woods. Eurasian Hobby reach their highest numbers in May, with maybe up to 40 in the air at one time! The reed-beds hold singing European Reed and Sedge Warblers plus Grasshopper Warbler and in the last few years we have seen both Marsh and Savi’s Warblers here. Rarities in recent years have included Little Bittern, Red-footed Falcon, Great Egret and Collared Pratincole amongst others. We will search for Common Crane, Common Kingfisher and a wide variety of insects and flowers.
£45 per person (does not include entrance fees or parking charges)
