Field Trip Lakenheath RSPB Reserve

16 Jun 2019 - 08:30 to 16:00

at Lakenheath RSPB Reserve, Station Road, Lakenheath (Lat/Long 52.4484 and 0.532487)

Lakenheath Fen reserve comprises a mixture of wetland and woodland south of the Little Ouse in
Suffolk. The RSPB has converted an area of arable farmland – former carrot fields – into a large
wetland, consisting mainly of reedbeds and grazing marshes. The new reedbeds have attracted
hundreds of pairs of reed warblers and sedge warblers, as well as bearded tits, bitterns (there are
11 booming males this year) and marsh harriers. You can expect to see up to 30-40 hobbys hawking
for insects over the fen and in 2007, Common Cranes first bred on the reserve and are a regular site.

Meet at the visitor centre at RSPB Lakenheath Fen, Station Road, Lakenheath, Brandon, Thetford,
Suffolk. IP27 9AD (OS grid reference TL724865)
