Sutton Fen sits within the Ant valley near to the town of Stalham.
Comprised mostly of internationally important fen habitat, the reserve supports many rare plants and invertebrates such as swallowtail butterflies and Norfolk hawker dragonflies. There are also large areas of nationally scarce saw sedge beds. Breeding bitterns, marsh harriers, Cetti's warblers, reed buntings and bearded tits are also found here.
Unfortunately, it’s not possible to visit Sutton Fen, due to the conservation sensitivity of the site.
The nearest similar RSPB nature reserve suitable for visiting is Strumpshaw Fen, which is home to many of the iconic species found at Sutton Fen. If you require further information, please use the contact details below.
