Dave Lawrence of London IVC invites you to join him and London IVC members in a bird watching weekend on the Norfolk coast. The event has become something of a fixture in the LIVC calendar, usually in October but for a change they are moving it to May, in the hope of good weather. The event is organised jointly with a North London nature conservation group.
We stay in accommodation in Cromer and visit the excellent bird watching sites along the Norfolk coast - a prime birding area. Cultural visits are also included. Some LIVC members and friends will be driving, so transport between reserves etc is available.
If you are interested please contact Dave asap so that accommodation can be sorted out.
From the Norfolk Birds web site:
"Its geographic location and wide diversity of habitats combine to make Norfolk one of the very best counties in Great Britain for bird watching – whatever the season. Whether its booming bitterns or sky-dancing marsh harriers over the reed beds of the north coast, wildfowl and waders wheeling over the immense mudflats of The Wash or the haunting calls of roosting cranes in the Broads, Norfolk can deliver a truly memorable wildlife experience all year round.
The county boasts a list of over 420 species, including some very rare resident species, breeding and winter visitors, passage migrants and many vagrants. It is one of the few counties in Britain where it is possible to see in excess of 100 bird species on any given day without too much effort. So it’s not surprising that a birdwatcher’s calendar is not complete without a visit to Norfolk and most visit many times during the year.
However, it's appeal is much broader than just birds, with over 100 miles of unspoilt coastline, habitats ranging from the dune slacks and marshes of Holkham to the arid heathland of the Brecks and a range of unusual or sought-after non-bird species, which include swallowtail butterflies in the Broads and the seal colony on Blakeney Point, Norfolk genuinely offers something for every interest."
