OS Wallpaper Download: January 2022 - Attenborough Nature Reserve, Nottingham by Sarah Perry
Created from a former gravel pit, this Site of Special Scientific Interest is now a mixed wetlands and a haven for many types of wildlife, including kingfishers and otters.
The Nature Reserve is named after the nearby village of Attenborough - and has benefitted from the support of the natural historian and TV presenter Sir David Attenborough, who's family came from the area. He officially opened the reserve in 1966, after the owners closed the gravel extraction facilities and returned the land to a more natural state. It was sold to Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust in 2019, and now has a visitor centre and education facilities.
