A very special place
Irthlingborough Lakes and Meadows is a hugely valuable wetland for birds and other wildlife. In the heart of the Nene Valley, it is one of the most important wetlands in England and an internationally important winter stop-over for thousands of wildfowl and waders.
In summer a fantastic variety of birds come here to breed, including many which have seriously declined in recent years, such as nightingales and cuckoos.
We can now protect its unique wildlife for ever, and increase numbers of some species that have declined in recent years such as lapwings and redshanks. Find out more about this wonderful new nature reserve.
