RSPB Fen Drayton Lakes

Fen Drayton Lakes began life as a flooded sand and gravel quarry next to riverside meadows. Now, a huge variety of wildlife is drawn to the area, including otters, dragonflies, ducks, swans and geese. There’s something to see (and hear) all year round.
We thoroughly recommend a visit during the summer to try and spot the 23 species of dragonfly and damselfly that call this site home!
Open times: All year round, 24/7.
