The Loughborough RSPB Group invite you to join them on their coach trip to Paxton Pits Nature Reserve - Cambridgeshire.
Paxton Pits is only so good for wildlife and people because it is managed, for both. The Pits complex is owned or leased by several different organisations and companies, each of whom undertakes management for wildlife, with the help of a large group of volunteers.
Birds have been quick to take advantage of the new wetland habitats created by gravel extraction. As scrub and woodland develops around the Pits, other birds move in. Around 70 species breed regularly, with several dozen more spending the winter here. To date, 234 species have been recorded at Paxton Pits, though the 'star' birds are undoubtedly nightingales, other birds of scrub habitat, cormorants and the winter wildfowl.
There is an information centre with refreshments and toilets.
For all of the information about this place have a look at their website -
