Fulford Ings SSSI


Bog, Flood Plain, Flowers for Pollinators, Riverbank, Wildflower Meadow



An important wetland site close to the centre of York. The site includes fen meadow and reedbeds. A good place to see wetland plants, birds and the occasional roe deer. A public footpath that follows the River Ouse out of York passes the site.
Fulford Ings are SSSI (site of special scientific interest) and there is an abundance of wildlife including curlew, deer, and rare birds passing through. It would be really helpful to the safety and well being of wildlife if dogs are kept on leads or under close control. Millenium Fields is a dog friendly area nearby, just up the riverbank.
