Hope carr nature reserve
Visitors can walk trails and observe birds on this 37-acre nature reserve.
Until 1990, the site was a grassy desert alongside a wastewater treatment works. We've lovingly transformed it into a complex array of wetland habitats, wild flower meadows, and hedgerows. Lakes, ponds and wader 'scrapes' have been dug, and banks raised to provide cover. 130 different species of birds now find a home in this semi-urban environment.
