Kingfishers Bridge Nature Reserve
The reserve, 10 miles north of Cambridge, has employed pioneering conservation techniques that have led to a remarkable recovery in both flora and fauna. Kingfishers Bridge has now attracted more than 210 different bird species, over 90 of which have bred here. This includes the reclusive Bittern, which first successfully bred here in 2007 - the first confirmed breeding attempt in Cambridgeshire since 1938. This richness in bird species is matched by over 500 species of plants and an increasingly rich fauna of recorded butterflies and moths and many other invertebrates.
In addition to a dedicated team of wardens, volunteers and supporters, The Kingfishers Bridge Wetland Creation Trust is a registered charity that exists to support and make grants to the reserve.
Visitors are welcome, year-round, to come and see the reserve and conservation in action although, as a ‘wildlife first’ project, access is controlled during the summer breeding season.
