Wicken Fen Wildlife walk, Cambridgeshire

Konik ponies at Wicken Fen, Cambridgeshire

Discover otters and bitterns on this wildlife walk around the National Trust's reserve at Wicken Fen.

Grade: Easy

This easy trail explores a fragment of the wilderness that once covered East Anglia and is two and three quarter miles long and will take approximately one and a half hours to complete.

Only 0.1% of Britain’s fenland remains un-drained, and Wicken Fen is the most accessible remnant of this habitat. It is our oldest nature reserve and home to many plants and insects, including rare birds such as bittern and marsh harrier, plus mammals like otter, water voles and deer.
