Bearded Tit

Outing to NWT Cley

Event info

This is part of the Norfolk Weekend.

NWT Cley Marshes is Norfolk Wildlife Trust’s oldest and best known nature reserve.

It was purchased in 1926 to be held 'in perpetuity as a bird breeding sanctuary'. It provided a blue print for nature conservation which has now been replicated across the UK. In 2012 an appeal helped purchase a further 57 hectares linking the two NWT reserves at Cley and Salthouse together, creating a single coastal reserve of more than 300 hectares. Today, Cley and Salthouse Marshes is one of the country’s most popular birdwatching sites, attracting more than 110,000 human visitors each year. The six hides (four of which are accessible via boardwalks) give fantastic views across pools and scrapes that are specially managed to attract breeding and passage birds. 

Highlights in summer: Avocet, spoonbill, ringed plover, redshank, lapwing, bittern, marsh harrier, bearded tit, sedge and reed warblers

We will meet at 9 am in the car park and leave around 4pm. More detailed information including a trail-guide and Risk Assessment will be provided beforehand.

The charging period is from 10am to 5pm every day, charging will be for a half day rate (3 hours) at £3 and a full day rate (6 hours) at £5.
