Potteric Carr


Potteric Carr is a nature reserve in Doncaster and managed by the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust.  

"Nature Paths suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs will wind you around a stunning, safe wetland habitat littered with pockets of woodland and wildflower meadows, and the friendly Kingfisher Tearooms is a great place to you recharge with friends and family. Hides allow you to get up close and personal with birds such as woodpeckers and kingfishers and during your wander you may also encounter mammals such as roe deer and hedgehogs. The ponds provide a home for newts, frogs and whirligig beetles with staff on hand to show you the best spots for pond dipping. The meadows during summer are full of butterflies including small tortoiseshell, in comparison to a snow laden winter where you may be lucky enough to spot our overwintering bitterns – this globally threatened species is a real highlight for any wildlife watcher" Yorkshire Wildlife Trust Website
