Fowlmere Nature Reserve

Cambs Open Space

Fowlmere Nature Reserve is a well-loved wildlife oasis set within farmland. Its former water-cress beds are now reedbed, fen, chalk grassland and scrub, home to breeding turtle dove, water rail and barn owl and winter roosts of reed bunting. Bearded tits and bitterns are found occasionally in winter, and otters and water voles are regularly seen. The reserve holds a small but fine example of a chalk stream, one of the UK’s rarest habitats.
