Discover the Broads' Best kept secret

Wildlife

Waveney River Centre is teeming with wildlife and we are engaged in an ongoing Wildlife Survey, in partnership with Carl Chapman of Wildlife Tours & Education. Carl makes regular visits to the Park, and has researched Wildlife Journals for further evidence of local species. Reptile mats have been installed, and bat and moth survey carried out.

81 species of bird have been recorded so far since February 2010, 9 species of mammal, 2 species of reptile and 7 species of butterfly.

Just across the river Waveney, reached by our pedestrian ferry, is Carlton Marshes nature reserve which is teeming with rare birds, animals, insects and plants.
