Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

Loved it!

We are staying nearby and wanted to get to the reserve at a sensible time. We arrived at 05:25 and were able to get full access to the reserve, and we went as far as the Joist Fen hide. We heard and saw bittern, and also saw hobby, marsh harrier, bearded tits, reed/sedge/cetti's warblers, shelduck, shoveller, avocet, and many more.

Although we are RSPB members we would gladly have paid the small entrance fee as it is worth EVERY penny. I am amazed to see a preview (further down the page) asking why the RSPB is here; it is very clear how much work and money has been invested in the reserve, and without them there would be very little birdlife.

If you like birding, and you have time, then you must see Lakenheath, but don't forget to call into the NWT Weeting reserve (a couple of miles away) to see the stone curlew, and if you have even more time them make sure you go to Wicken Fen.

Hi Jim, Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a positive review. It is lovely to read how much you enjoyed the reserve, and we are very glad you saw plenty of wildlife too. Early morning visits are usually rewarding with plenty of good sightings! Weeting and Wicken are also super places and thank you for recommending those to potential visitors too. Best wishes, Heidi

A superb and friendly welcome on arrival. We were given a map of the area and advice on where to walk and what to see.
We saw all sorts of wildlife on our walk which was well signed. Highly recommended. Very pleased that we have become RSPB members.

Nice reserve. Shame RSPB take over these natural sites and try to monetise everything. Shocked to be asked to pay on entrance to walk around wild land which these charities take over and build on then ask the public to pay for their little visitor centres! Best left as wildland.

Thank you for leaving a review. I am sorry that you feel dissapointed by our presence here- in 1995 when the RSPB bought the land here there was very little wildlife to be seen- it was intensively-farmed agricultural fields with much less wildlife value than it currently has. Because bitterns were on the brink of extinction in the UK then, it was hoped that the intensively-farmed land could be re-wetted and sculpted into a network of reedbed, open areas of water and wet grassland to support the bitterns in their recovery as a breeding species, and to provide homes for a wealth of other wildlife too. What you see when you walk around is not how it was before we as the RSPB got here- it is what we created. Now the reserve is home to marsh harriers, hobbies, cranes, bearded tits, grasshopper warblers amongst other commoner birds and we are supporting water voles, otters, kingfishers and a myriad of insects and flowers too, many of which are very rare. The reason we charge a small entrance fee is to support our work as a conservation charity- and given that 90% of our net income is spent on conservation, and that entry fees contribute hugely to this income, hopefully you can see how this conservation wouldn't be possible without supporting our habitat regeneration projects with entry fees. We do offer a membership of the RSPB- starting at £4 per month per adult, so this may be a more financially efficient option for you if you visit more than one RSPB reserve per month. Thank you again for your review and i'm sorry you feel this way about our work here- though I hope you enjoyed your walk around this transformed arable farmland. Best wishes, Heidi (Visitor Experience Officer)

A wonderful nature reserve.

The reserve is well spaced out and seems to be a favourite place for many. Totally understandable as to why!

The trails go off in a couple of different directions.

There is a small visitor area, staffed by friendly and informative staff, where you can also get little snack and drinks and a small selection of RSPB "goods". Also a toilet here.

This is an excellent nature-watching site.
Very friendly staff, very well managed reserve, great views and gives fantastic opportunities to see interesting birds.
Over the years visiting this place and my last visit in January 2020 I observed:
Montagu's harrier
Hen herrier
Peregrine
Kestrel
Buzzard
Common crane
Whooper swan
Great Bittern
Barn owl
Cuckoo
Red-footed falcon
Hobby falcon
Marsh harrier

This is a particularly good location for barn owls which can be seen near the visitor center at dusk, and for bitterns, which need luck to be seen, but in the summer they get all over the place. In short, a wonderful experience!
The pictures included are from my last visit only- January 2020.

We visited Lakenheath rspb today, excellent day saw hobbies, great white egrets, buzzards and kestrels. As we were leaving we went to seated area opposite the washland viewpoint there was a kestrel hovering, many gulls, ducks, terns and many geese. Within a few minutes five people entered the area between the river little Ouse and the wash pools they were dressed in camo gear, had dogs and guns
The geese were raised by one of the men and flew towards the rspb grounds literally a few yards away the other men raised their shot guns and blasted into the flock, we jumped up and waved and shouted diverting the geese to fly higher and two snipe also made their escape, lucky none fell. If any were injured they would be in the rspb reserve. Two ducks however were not so lucky, shot to death by the laughing gunmen, who threw their bodies at their dogs, showing no respect for the birds. We were straight on the phone the rspb centres manager he just shrugged off our report saying there was nothing he could do. It was all legal practice. There is no monitoring of these gunmen, who knows what species they are killing. We did see the kestrel or hobby that were both hunting very close to the shooters area. This is barbaric activity is occurring literally yards from the reserve boundary which we stood. We were probably legally too close to be have to experience gun fire, the birds being shot at above our heads. So it seems the invite is to visit Lakenheath rspb watch the birds and then see them blasted out of the sky to their deaths!

Thank you for your review of Lakenheath Fen. I am sorry that your enjoyment of the hobbys, egrets and kestrels earlier in the day was disturbed by the wildfowling occurring on the north side of the river. The land you saw the activity taking place on, the Hockwold Washes, is private land and outside of our control as a charity. Shooting certain ducks and geese is a legal activity and maybe undertaken in England between 1st September and 31st January – nonetheless, the RSPB has spoken to the landowners responsible for the monitoring and has no reason to believe that the wildfowlers are not complying with the law – everyone shooting is required to have a shotgun licence, insurance and use non-lead shot in compliance with the law. If you wish to visit us again and would prefer to stay away from the wildfowling site, then we’d recommend exploring some of our other trails away from the river bank. Alternatively, you can visit us on a Sunday when no wildfowling is permitted in Norfolk or visit us outside the shooting season. We hope to see you again. Kind regards, David Rogers Site Manager

An enjoyable walk along the dig over looking the wetlands with waders and ducks. The day we visited, wasn't teaming with our two legged feathered friends but worth the visit.

Love this place, was great to be able to visit again even with a few restrictions.
Yes it's a long walk to the end of the reserve but the reward is seeing bittern, cranes, bearded tits, cuckoo etc.
Take a snack and waterproof as there is nowhere to shelter if it rains.

I always visit her a number of times in a year and have done so for many years even before it turned int such a fine wildlife refuge! Great birds such as Crane, Bittern, warblers and raptors and wonderful fenland landscapes with huge skies. Much of the reserve was once arable land and has been turned into superb habitat by the RSPB in a relatively short time.
