Named after a cherished national treasure, David Attenborough, the Attenborough Nature Reserve is a fabulous display of preserved wildlife in the region. Covering just over 142ha (350 acres), the former gravel pit is now home to a huge wealth of local flora and fauna, including kingfishers, sand martins and widgeons. Run by the Nottingham Wildlife Trust, the reserve is key to educating visitors to help assist in the preservation of the region’s natural wonders.
