Norfolk Bird Watching

Bird Watching in Snettisham and Titchwell

Birds

Though Norfolk has many outstanding attributes, if we had to pick one as our absolute favourite, it would have to be the landscape. Largely unspoilt and boasting some of the most unique habitats in the country, Norfolk’s fields, beaches, marshes and lagoons help to make the county one of the most beautiful in Britain. With two of the county’s best RSPB reserves within easy reach of the King William, a day of spotting some great British birds is guaranteed to be a highlight of your trip to the region.

Snettisham and Titchwell
Snettisham and Titchwell Reserves are a must-see for anyone staying in the area. Taking in one of the most beautiful stretches of the north Norfolk Coast and large, muddy expanses of The Wash, the area that the reserves cover is incredibly important for wading birds, sea birds and other British species. Snettisham is free to visit while Titchwell charges just £5 per car for non-members, making both ideal destinations for a family day out and great places to start your adventure in the Norfolk countryside.

Birds
Both reserves boast a number of star species, with many easy to spot throughout the year.  As Snettisham is located on the coast, it’s the perfect place to spot waders and other water loving birds. The pink-footed goose, the bar-tailed godwit, the avocet and the knot are all regular visitors to the reserve, with shelducks also easy to spot throughout the year. At Titchwell you’ll find a mixture of species, with the marsh harrier, the bittern, the bearded tit and the redshank some of the most exciting visitors to the area.

Visit any time of year
Both Snettisham and Titchwell offer a range of outstanding walking routes, as well as a network of hides and observation points. During big tides, Snettisham is especially popular as the rising water forces thousands of waders off of the mud flats and onto the land, providing a spectacular view for visitors to behold.
