This is the place to witness two of the UK’s great wildlife spectacles. On big tides, as water covers the vast mudflats of The Wash, tens of thousands of wading birds are pushed off their feeding grounds and onto the roost banks and islands in front of the RSPB hides.
This popular reserve on the north Norfolk coast has something for everyone. A walk from the visitor centre down to the sandy beach takes you past reedbeds and shallow lagoons, which are often full of birds. You can sit on benches or watch from spacious, wheelchair-accessible hides.
Scolt Head Island is the prime example of an offshore barrier island in the UK. It is situated on a very dynamic coastline and is steadily growing westward.
The Brecks is a unique region of diverse habitats which support an impressive cross-section of British birds, offering exciting opportunities for the keen enthusiast. The star birds of the Brecks are the Stone Curlew, Woodlark and Nightjar.
Many wetlands are highly productive and support far more species than would be expected for the surface area that they cover. They are also essential habitats that provide society with a wide range of benefits, yet society often takes wetlands for granted.
These fantastic adjacent reserves form part of NWT’s Gaywood Valley Living Landscape[http://www.norfolkwildlifetrust.org.uk/a-living-landscape/gaywood-valley], and share a rich mosaic of habitats. They include the Tony Hallatt Memorial Reserve, and we have added in recent years The Delft and Rising Heath.
