RSPB Fairburn Ings

RSPB Fairburn Ings is a nature reserve at Fairburn Ings in the county of West Yorkshire, England, by the River Aire.

Repeated flooding by the River Aire has resulted in a series of shallow lakes which provide habitats for wildfowl and many other birds. One of the lakes houses the historic Newton Abbey.
