Modern farming practices have made UK wetlands one of the fastest disappearing habitats. Fortunately here at Sevenoaks we have a wide range of wetland habitats, which attract a range of different species.
Did you know that some wetland birds have specially adapted bills and feet depending on what sort of food they eat and what type of wetland they live in?
As you walk around the reserve you will see some species that live here all year round and other species that are migrants….meaning they travel here from other places to feed or breed.
