Come and experience Norfolk's RSPB Strumpshaw Fen during National Lottery Open Week with your lottery ticket or scratchcard and get free entry between 9 and 17 March*.
Located around six miles east of Norwich on the River Yare in Norfolk, this nature reserve was the set for the gripping Radio 4 drama, Song of the Reeds and has a full range of broadland habitats and wildlife. Take a pleasant walk around the reedbeds, woodlands and orchid-rich meadows on one our many trails and you could spot courting pairs of marsh harriers performing their spectacular 'sky-dancing' displays. Listen for the songs of spring migrants including sedge and reed warblers, cuckoos, grasshopper warblers and whitethroats and watch as swallows and swifts dart across the pools where great crested grebes and other waterfowl prepare their nests.
Young visitors can try out our adventure trail with den building and natural play activities along the way, or explore our woodland and meadow areas to discover carpets of spring bluebells, rare swallowtail butterflies and beautiful wild orchids in season. This is the perfect place to run around and get that essential dose of fresh air and our staff and volunteers are always pleased to help share their stories and top tips on where to find recent sightings.
