Fen Drayton Lakes Nature Reserve RSPB

St Ives

Some family events are held check the events page for details.

This complex of lakes and traditional riverside meadows next to the River Great Ouse used to be gravel workings. It is a fantastic place to explore and watch birds with huge numbers of ducks, swans and geese on the lakes in winter. In summer, terns, hobbies and a variety of dragonflies are regularly seen. Otters also live here, but are rarely seen.

Several public rights-of-way and trails cross the reserve. Disabled access is possible to one of the viewing screens. Please call for more information.

Entrance charges; None, though donations to help us continue our work here are appreciated.

If you are new to birdwatching...
Wildfowl flocks can be seen from autumn to spring, with breeding warblers, hedgerow and wetland birds from spring to autumn.
