Mid-Summer Norfolk Birdwatching Special

Friday 11th – Monday 14th July 2014

Stone Curlew adult

Stone Curlew, high on our most-wanted list

There’s nowhere better to be in July than on the North Norfolk coast. This beautiful stretch of unspoiled coastline holds year-round fascination for birdwatchers and we will enjoy resident birds along with the summer visitors. We hope to see such charismatic species as Avocet, Bittern, Stone Curlew, Bearded Tit, Marsh Harriers, Barn Owl and Dartford Warbler. July also sees the start of return wader migration and there’s always a chance of a rarity popping up at this time of year. Expect to see around 120 species during our stay in this magical part of the world.

During our stay we will visit the famous nature reserves at RSPB Titchwell, Cley NWT, Holkham NNR along the beautiful North Norfolk coast and many other exciting locations. We will draw on our huge experience of birding in this area and will also be in constant touch with the very latest birding information to ensure we see the maximum number of species possible. As always on a tour with The Biggest Twitch, we will also allow plenty of time to enjoy good views of the birds we encounter along the way.

RSPB Titchwell

RSPB Titchwell, always an exciting place to visit


Day 1:

The tour starts early on Friday morning at mutually agreed pick-up points as we drive over to North Norfolk, birding along the way and aiming to reach East Anglia by early afternoon. We may look for Stone Curlews before finishing our day on the beautiful North Norfolk coast at dusk. We will respond to the latest bird news for any scarce and rare birds in the area. Overnight in our comfortable hotel on the North Norfolk coast close to the marshes teeming with birds.

Days 2 and 3:

The long daylight hours will give us plenty of time to explore the unspoiled coastline of North Norfolk. Our exact itinerary will be governed by the weather and latest bird news. During our time in the area we will explore the best birding sites at RSPB Titchwell, Cley NWT and Holkham NNR and respond to bird news as it comes in. We will also be keeping our eyes peeled for those special local mammal residents including four species of deer, common seals and brown hares. Overnight in our comfortable hotel on the North Norfolk coast.

Day 4:

After some pre-breakfast birding, we spend the rest of the morning mopping up any species we may have missed before saying goodbye to the North Norfolk coast around lunchtime. If time permits, we may break our return journey with more birding en route before reaching the agreed drop-off points.
