Fowlmere nature reserve is set in the woodlands with water areas covered with reeds. It is perfect for a circular walk of about 2 miles with a couple of hideouts to go bird watching Great day out all year around

Excellent tranquil walk round this well kept reserve, if you are lucky you may see a kingfisher! All the volunteer work teams on site were friendly and helpful.
