Mid Yare National Nature Reserve is a prime example of a Broadland floodplain wetland with a patchwork of wet woodlands, shallow lakes, reedfen, meadows and wet grassland along 5 miles of the Yare Valley and a great place to see many iconic Broadland species.
Main habitats: Peatland
Area: 779 ha
Management: Although most NNRs are managed by Natural England, some are wholly or partly managed by other bodies approved under Section 35 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981.
Mid Yare NNR is managed and owned/leased by RSPB, much of it supported by Natural England under the Higher Level Stewardship scheme.
Further information about the NNR, its wildlife and how to visit can be found on the RSPB website .
