Fen Landscape – Kingfisher Bridge

Kingfisher Bridge, March 2021

‘Since 1995, the Kingfishers Bridge nature reserve has transformed 250 acres of farmland into a variety of wetland habitats and become a vital sanctuary for numerous endangered species of the Fens. Situated some ten miles north of Cambridge and bordered by the River Cam, the reserve 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.’  https://www.kingfishersbridge.org
