Lovely reserve
sep. 2021
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.

Bird watching in my favourite reserve!
jan. 2020
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.

Watch ducks and geese being shot
okt. 2020 • Familie
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!
What kind of world do we live in?

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

What a transformation - carrots to wetlands
aug. 2020
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.

Fenland wonderland
jun. 2020 • Alene
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.

A Wonderful Reserve from Carrots to Cranes
feb. 2020
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.

Friendly staff and great views
feb. 2020
Our first visit here, although visited many other RSPB sites over the years. A good size visitor centre with lots of friendly helpful staff. With our map we walked over 2 hours exploring most of the paths. We stopped at the open lookouts, with sheltered seats looking out on to beautiful views. There are shorter trails for families with treasure trails, activities and play equipment to explore. We visited on a sunny bright day in February. Quite a few other people were walking on the trails too. Swans, coots, geese etc were about. A well looked after site. A great place for nature walks.

Wild Winter Walk
jan. 2020
We visit Norfolk annually in winter and though there other RSPB and non RSPB reserves that have a greater range of birds we love this place, its has solitude and it does have some great views and birds. It also has some great staff and volunteers, well done to all. See you next year.

Be patient
okt. 2019
I visited this RSPB reserve on a damp autumn afternoon and I think I was probably the only visitor. I certainly didn't see anyone else. That said the volunteer at the visitor centre was enthusiastic and welcoming. He suggested the best places to view the wildlife and the best route to take around the reserve.

There are several hides and viewing platforms and it is possible to extend the route by climbing up onto the public footpath which runs alongside the reserve atop the river bank.

As it turned out the wildlife was doing the sensible thing and laying low. I saw a couple of roe deer, which was nice, a great egret, a few water birds and a few small birds on the feeders near the visitor centre. I may have briefly seen a bittern which I disturbed in one of the reed beds.

However it was a nice walk in an area which I don't normally visit and on a nice day would make a good morning or afternoon objective for a keen birdwatcher or nature enthusiast. But you have ti be patient.
