Norwood Road: In the heart of the fenland town of March shelters a wildlife refuge on six and a half acres of reclaimed land that once housed a group of cottages and a mine ballast pit. The pit reflooded and is now home to coot, moorhen and mallard, as well as nesting sedge and reed warblers and the newts use the cottage rubble for winter hibernation. Alder, buckthorn, willow, reeds and other wetland species thrive in this variety of wildlife habitats which include marsh, open water and hawthorn scrub. Other species you might see include grass snake, adders tongue fern and, at dusk in summer, noctule bats. As with all these sites please observe the Country Code. This is a wet site and conditions more suitable to the energetic walker.
