Has anyone here been to Fen Drayton Gravel pits?

Forecast suggests nice weather in the morning so may stray over there if it sounds worthwhile!

Many thanks

I'd recommend Wicken Fen too.

Yes - yesterday!!!

I'm just about to post some images for gentle comment: I really enjoyed it, and if tomorrow's weather is more like yesterday's than today's you should be in for a treat.

I'm no bird photographer, but I got a lot of decent landscape shots, especially with fine skies around dawn.

I strongly recommend taking wellington boots: most of the paths are actually OK, but here and there it is extremely muddy, plus there are some nice shots to be had by wading in to some of the ponds.
