Sculthorpe Moor Community Nature Reserve

Sculthorpe Moor Community Nature Reserve


Sculthorpe Moor Community Nature Reserve contains a patchwork of habitats including wet woodland, hazel coppice, reed and sedge beds, open water and wet meadow. It is a haven for many beautiful, rare and interesting species and the perfect place for a spot of bird watching or a peaceful walk. Birds and other wildlife can be seen from the hide, the pond shimmers with the metallic colours of dragonfly wings in the summer, a quiet visitor may catch a glimpse of a water vole swimming along the drainage ditches and majestic marsh harriers can be seen soaring over the reed bed. A programme of guided walks, activity sessions and courses provides the opportunity for visitors to learn more about the reserve and its wildlife.
