Reflections at Arger Fen

Reflections in the rain-puddles near the ford at Arger Fen in south Suffolk between Bures and Nayland. Arger Fen is a small fragment of the wildwood that once covered much of Suffolk over a thousand years ago. It`s a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and is one of only two woods in Eastern England to have a large number of wild cherry trees. There were several woods within the boundaries of Arger Fen. Visit the wood on a July evening and you will most probably see Glow Worms. Throughout the summer, butterflies in large numbers are attracted by the wild flowers.

Arger Fen`s birdlife include the Goldcrest, Nuthatch, Treecreeper and Woodcock. Other occasional visitors include the Grasshopper Warbler, Nightingale and Hawfinch.
