Norfolk in Spring

Tour Code: GBR03

A weekend birdwatching tour in East Anglia.

Our first destination on this short tour will be Cley Marshes, the premier reserve of the Norfolk Naturalists’ Trust and one of the most famous in Britain. Cley holds a wide range of exciting breeding birds including Bittern and Bearded Tit, and at the time our visit it’s also a superb location for migrant waders such as Ruff and Garganey, and the scrub and wet fields are a magnet for migrant passerines. Our next stop is Holkham, where we’ll hope to get good views of Marsh Harrier and late winter waterfowl such as Brent Geese. Lastly we’ll spend a day exploring Breckland and the ancient Wayland Wood for Nightingale, Stone Curlew and the beautiful Golden Pheasant among other special birds.

A lovely group of people, nice hotel, fantastic weather. Toby was brilliant. Knowledgeable and good fun.
I loved the whole thing. Tom and his wife were both great and the hotel was spotless.
Our guide, Tom, is sociable and an expert in his field. Stayed at Tom’s enchanting and super-clean big house. The food was delicious and the organisation 1st class.
