Greylake

The fields here used to be arable farmland, but now they are being looked after so that they are ideal for wetland birds and other wildlife.

We have put in structures to keep the water levels high and have created miles of new ditches and shallow water-filled gutters, and dug out numerous shallow pools or ‘scrapes’. Now you can see lapwings, snipe, curlews and redshanks nesting here in summer, as well as yellow wagtails, skylarks and meadow pipits.
