About the event
Join us on a guided tour of the privately owned Kingfisher Bridge Nature Reserve with James Moss, the Site Manager. Strategically located on the River Cam and including part of Cam Washes SSSI, the owner Andrew Green saw the potential of the fenland site and in 1995 set about reverting former arable land to create a mosaic of wetlands fed by groundwater from the Upware limestone. The site is now well known for its assemblage of wetland birds, including bittern and cranes and scarce wetland plants such as water germander, for which it is the national stronghold. We'll take in the bat cave too. Eighteen years ago it was constructed from scratch over limestone, and has since attracted increasing numbers of wintering Natterer's and Brown long-eared bats.
