Saturday 30th July – Redgrave & Lopham Fen,Suffolk Wildlife Trust

 coordinator David  Gibbons

The fen is located at Low Common Road, South Lopham, Diss. IP22 2HX. Please meet at the Visitor Centre car park at 8.30 am for a 9.00am start.

The fen is an important wetland and is the source of the River Waveney and is home to insect eating plants and Britain’s largest spider, the“Fen Raft Spider”. Over 120 bird species recorded in recent  years with 50 breeding species.

Also 21 species of Dragonflies and 27 species of Butterfly have been recorded. All 4 Suffolk reptiles, (adder, grass snake, slow worm and common lizard) can be seen together with various amphibians mammals and several hundred moth species. Also over 250 plant species are present so there is interest for everyone.

I envisage we follow the Great Fen trail of 3.5 kms. which gives us a range of habitats. After this feel free to follow other trails , the Spider trail is another 2kms.

There will be some site maps although they are available on the Suffolk Wildlife Trust website.

If you have any queries please contact me via the WVBS Recorder e-mail address.
