This easy trail explores a fragment of the wilderness that once covered East Anglia. Wicken Fen is the National Trust’s oldest nature reserve and is home to rare species such as the bittern and water vole. Other wildlife highlights to look out for include Konik ponies, highland cattle, roe deer, wigeon, teal and shoveler. Only 0.1% of Britain’s fenland remains un-drained, and Wicken Fen is the most accessible remnant of this habitat.
