Items to bring:  Stout shoes, waterproofs, drink and packed lunch. There is a good cafe at Wicken but it can be busy at weekends.

Important:            Prebooking essential so I can inform the Warden how many to expect.

Other information:  We have permission to use the educational dipping ponds - excellent for Dragonflies and other insects.The British Dragonfly Society has a Centre at Wicken Fen. Our visit is during Dragonfly Week 2014 so special events may be planned:  http://www.british-dragonflies.org.uk/content/dragonfly-centre .
There are several hides around the fen and the last couple of years have seen plentiful sightings of Hobby and Marsh Harrier. See Richard Nicoll’s article in The Iris Winter 2013. The Fen supports a good population of Cuckoos.

Cost:                         Free to National Trust Members

£5.90 (£6.50 with Gift aid) to non-Member of the NT. Car park free for Members; £2.50 for non-members.
