Huttoft Bank Pit Nature Reserve

A former clay pit that features open water and extensive reedbeds. Fifteen species of duck have been recorded here and moorhen, water rail, reed bunting, reed and sedge warblers all nest here. Short-eared owls and bitterns visit in winter, marsh harriers in spring.

About Huttoft Bank Pit

These pits were created after the devastating East Coast floods of 1953. Clay was taken to improve and raise the sea defences and the resulting pits have been turned into a series of man-made nature reserves.
