Minsmere Nature Reserve

Situated on the Suffolk coast, in Eastern England, Minsmere consists of fenland areas which in 1940 were flooded as an anti-invasion measure. In 1962 work commenced on the construction of a 17 hectare shallow lagoon system. Minsmere is the most important bird reserve in the United Kingdom.
