YWT Potteric Carr

Potteric Carr is managed by Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and is near Doncaster, just off the M18 motorway.

This Site of Special Scientific Interest has been created on land of former coal industry, railways and farmland, though the reserve is still dissected by the East Coast Main Line. Within more than 500 acres there is open water, reed beds, marsh, scrub and woodland, and with it a tremendous diversity of flora and fauna.

Potteric Carr is becoming one of the best places to see Bittern, with up to 6 birds being present in the winter.

Below is a list of birds I've seen on several visits at different times of the year.
