Site Details

One of the best sites for birdwatching in Peterborough, Ferry Meadows offers a fine variety of birds throughout the seasons. Spring and autumn sees migrants such as warblers, chats, terns, gulls and waders passing through, while good numbers of wildfowl - particularly Tufted Duck - can be encountered in winter. Scarce and unusual species are regular, particularly at times of peak migration.
