Wicken Fen has become one of our regular walks over the winter and early spring as there is always something to see. This watery reserve catches the low early sun and mists giving warm reflections and frosted reeds. The large expanses of fenland are criss crossed with straight lodes and furrowed fields giving a variety of environments for the thousands of different species that live or visit there. I'm not sure we shall visit quite so often now the weather is warming as being a wetland it is often alive with gnats and mosquitoes who seem to find my husband the tastiest dish on their menu! These are a few photos of the landscape taken over the winter.
