Wildlife

There’s loads to see at Paxton Pits if you’re patient. It's a well-loved spot for bird watching, with many overwintering wildfowl and regular sightings of kingfishers - as well as the famous nightingales. But you'll also see plenty of other evidence of a healthy ecosystem here, including elusive mammals such as otters and weasels, plus a wide range of wildflowers, dragonflies, damsel flies and butterflies.
