What we're looking for

Lakenheath Fen is a very popular reserve where visitors come from far and wide to be immersed in fenland habitat. They come to experience all the spectacles the reserve has to offer including the largest gathering of hobby in Britain. It is quite a sight when flocks of this agile falcon dart over the reedbed in mid-May as they hunt for insect prey. We need a volunteer who can help us to monitor the standards of our visitor facilities on the reserve (both inside and outside), to ensure that our visitors continue to have an enjoyable experience with us.
