Three Week UK Custom Birdwatching Trip Norfolk Section

Burnham Overy Staithe April 2018 1

We again took over the wonderful house overlooking the marshes for a week.

We recently completed a wonderful three week custom UK Birdwatching Trip for a group of four North American birdwatchers. We picked up Steve and Sue, Terri and Debbie from Manchester Airport and drove east to Norfolk. We again used the wonderful house overlooking the marshes that we regularly use on our Norfolk October trips. It was wonderful to be back at the house in April and of course the views were just as stunning! A few of the birds we watched from the balcony included Short-eared Owl, Spoonbills, Little Terns, Avocets, Marsh Harriers and many more! Come and join our Norfolk trips for amazing birds and the best places to stay with superb food! Our guests loved the house, Norfolk, the birds and the food. Here are a few images from the Norfolk week of the three week tour...
