Carlton Marshes has been shortlisted for BBC Countryfile magazine's nature reserve of the year

Carlton Marshes voted third in public vote for BBC Countryfile magazine's nature reserve of the year.

Celebrating the best of the British countryside, the annual BBC Countryfile magazine awards feature wild and wonderful places to visit, things to see and projects that are helping wildlife recover.

Made up of ten categories, the shortlist was based on readers' suggestions and we were delighted to see our very own Carlton Marshes in the best nature reserve category. A phenomenal accolade, given the habitat creation work is yet to begin!
