Earsham Wetland Centre

Earsham has been home to a collection of native wildlife and rare breed farm animals since 1976. The reserve is home to a wide variety of wild animals that live on the scrapes and amongst the wildflowers that surround the paddocks. Mallard, Gadwall, Shoveler, Teal and Shelduck can usually be found dabbling in the shallow lakes, being occasionally joined by Oystercatchers, Redshank, Curlew and Lapwing.

Throughout the summer months lambs in the meadows of water mint and orchids, alongside tame European Cranes, White Storks, Pink-footed and Barnacle Geese.

The willow carrs are grazed by a herd of Bagot Goats and flock of Slate Turkeys, whilst the Riverside Walk is home to Suffolk Punch Horses and Red Poll Cattle.
