Winter Residents - National Nature Reserve

Friday 14 January 2022
8am-11am & 12pm-3pm

As the North Norfolk Coast begins to move out of Covid-19 lockdown, and tourism businesses re-open, more planned events are taking place.  These are just listings, so please follow links and check with organisers of events before assuming events are running.

As the days draw shorter and temperatures in Northern Europe plummet, Holkham National Nature Reserve sees the arrival of tens of thousands of wildfowl, who choose to spend their winters on our grazing and salt marshes.

Huge skeins of Pink-Footed Geese, massive flocks of Wigeon and Teal and bustling gaggles of Brent Geese provide spectacular viewing for birdwatchers. Smaller rarities, such as Snow Buntings and Shore Larks also join the crowds and, following them all, are the hunting raptors. Join our expert Reserve Guide to witness this avian winter wonderland at its best.. At the end of the walk you’ll enjoy a well-deserved coffee and cake at The Lookout.

The walk will cover approximately 3-4 miles over varied terrain. This may include mud, sand and uneven surfaces. We suggest dressing for the weather and bringing water and snacks with you, plus binoculars if you have them. Maximum 10 people per tour. Tours last approximately 3 hours. Meet outside The Lookout on Lady Anne’s Drive. Car parking is included in your ticket - your car pass will be issued to you by the guide before your walk. Sorry, but dogs are not permitted on this walk.

Price: Tickets: £20, includes parking and a hot drink and cake.

Location: The Lookout, Lady Anne's Drive
