Clapton Moor Nature Reserve

Add Clapton Moor Nature Reserve to your Itinerary

Clapton Moor


Clapton Moor is an important area for its breeding waders and wintering wildfowl and the rhynes are home to many other species. During summer and spring birds such as redshank, snipe, and lapwing reside in the moor for breeding. Other birds that can be found here are buzzards, peregrine and hobby falcons that chase the matins, swifts and swallows that live off the moor.

The water levels in the grassland areas can be controlled and can therefore be adjusted to remain wet even during the summer months. During winter time the reserve is flooded deliberately to attract certain birds. The area is a good place to go to if you want to get away from the busy city centre. The best times to do so are from April till July or from October till February and it is open at all times. The ground is mainly flat except for the rhynes, you can gain access to the hide along the path, but the access to that path is restricted. Therefore wheelchair users may have difficulties. Dogs are allowed, but have to be kept on lead. There is a small car park close to the entrance of Clapton Moor. By car you can reach the reserve within 30 minutes from the city centre. When using public transport it will take you about an hour and a half including a 30 minute walk.
