Coast & Birdlife of Norfolk
Bird lovers This is one of Britain’s great centres for bird lovers. Combinations of salt and fresh water marshes provide a unique environment for visiting species. Binoculars are worth carrying along any part of the coast, as visiting birds change with the seasons. There are particularly good facilities at
Titchwell (RSPB) www.rspb.org.uk
Cley Marshes (Norfolk Wildlife Trust).
North Sea Seals Gray seals and common seals abound in the waters just off the coast and regularly haul up on the beach at Blakeney Point. Boat trips from Blakeney and Morston provide a wonderful opportunity to get close to the animals without threatening or disturbing them.
Wide open beaches The great sweeps of sand along the north coast make it easy to get away from your fellow man if you fancy a quiet and uninterrupted walk. Holkham, Blakeney, Overstrand and Mundesley all have the space to allow you time to yourself.
