Carr Vale

UK»England»Derbyshire»Carr Vale

Carr Vale is a wetland reserve which is ranked among the top five sites in Derbyshire for birdwatching. It is a mosaic of open water, marsh, wet and dry grassland, scrub and trees that attracts a rich variety of bird life throughout the year. Carr Vale lies on a flyway for many species and is an ideal place for them to feed and roost. You are likely to see passage waders and other migrating birds such as swallows, pipits and thrushes and great skeins of geese can be seen flying over in early and late winter.

To reduce disturbance, the reserve is accessible only on the concessionary paths.
