his reserve has the full range of broadland habitats and wildlife. Walk round the reedbeds, woodlands and orchid-rich meadows and you could chance upon marsh harriers, bitterns and kingfishers. Come in spring and summer when the meadows bloom with flowers, and see an array of dragonflies and butterflies, including the spectacular swallowtail.

There's plenty for children to do, with activity rucksacks available, and a range of guided walks for birdwatching beginners and old hands too. As well as the three hides, the reserve has a wheelchair-accessible viewing point.
