May is a great time to see Hobbies in large numbers as they migrate through and the Marsh Harriers are usually active nest building etc, There should also be plenty of insects around.

We will mainly be walking outside the paying entrance part but you might like to visit the iconic wind pump and the hides. a fee is payable for non NT members.

This event will follow the social distancing rules in operation at the time. Guidance will be given on routes and potential locations of good subjects.
