The Loughborough RSPB Group invite you to join them on their coach trip to Titchwell RSPB Reserve - Norfolk
Whilst Titchwell is changing because of rising sea levels it is still one of the best reserves in the country.
This popular reserve on the north Norfolk coast has something for everyone. A walk from the visitor centre down to the sandy beach takes you past reedbeds and shallow lagoons, which are often full of birds. You can sit on benches or watch from spacious, wheelchair-accessible hides.
This is one of the most exciting times of the year. The first spring migrants, such as swallows and sand martins, can be seen over the lagoons with wheatears along the beach. In April and May, the lagoons can be full of migrating waders, including ruffs, black tailed godwits, spotted redshanks and dunlins. Marsh harriers can be seen performing their 'sky dancing' display and the reedbeds are alive with singing reed and sedge warblers. If you are lucky, you may also hear the 'booming' of the bittern, which has recently returned to breed at Titchwell.
A well-stocked shop has a wide range of RSPB gifts and books and a large selection of telescopes and binoculars. They have a servery and inside eating area selling a selection of hot and cold food and drinks, as well as snacks and locally-made cakes.
