Wicken Fen Nature Reserve

We enjoyed our first trip to Wicken Fen so much that we decided to make a return trip. It is one of the first properties that the National Trust took on, in 1899, and is host to over 9,000 species of wildlife.

On this trip we decided to walk along one of the paths we hadn’t explored the last time and unlike last time we managed to photograph some of the fen’s dragonflies, as below. A roe deer also ran across our path, but far too quickly to be photographed.

We also took another boat trip, with an excellent guide, and got to see plenty more dragonflies and birds, though none stayed still long enough to be photographed.

A lovely place to visit you can find more photos here.
