Details

Sculthorpe Moor Nature Reserve, owned by the Hawk and Owl Trust 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 exciting species and the perfect place for a spot of bird watching or a peaceful walk. Birds and other wildlife can be seen from the hides, 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. Many of the native species of Birds of Prey can be viewed throughout the year and with its easy boardwalk paths provides excellent access for all.
