Wicken Fen nature reserve,  Cambridgeshire,  January 2017

Wicken Fen in Cambridgeshire is recognised as an important wetland habitat, home to over 9000 recorded species including many rare species of plants, birds and dragonflies.    Changes to climate and the surrounding environment mean that there is significantly less natural flooding of the Wicken Fen area, and the smart wind-powered pump now ensures the rewetting of the area and the continued growth of wildlife and plants.
