The river Great Ouse runs through it (along with Cambridge's Guided Bus!) and there are walks of various lengths.
We got there about 7.30am and started off round the Fen Drayton side where we immediately spotted a family of Greater-spotted woodpeckers in a tree a little way off - time to again test my new lens to it's limit!
The river itself was quiet although the banks were buzzing with butterflies and damselflies. We checked out the main hide, and were wondering why the door had been removed when we saw a sign had been put up. Sad that this is necessary but had to chuckle at the wording.
We decided to carry on around the Swavesey lake also, spotting herons, grebes, kestrels, butterflies and demoiselles. We just caught sight of the face of a lovely fox watching us through the reeds but he had gone before I had chance to raise the camera.
A beautiful morning walk.
