Enigmatic Avocet

Come and join us as we enjoy some of the best summer birdwatching that Britain has to offer on the North Norfolk coast. The marshes and lagoons here are alive with breeding birds and the last of the migrants heading north. With resident birds and summer migrants to enjoy, it is an exciting time of year for birdwatching and the perfect time to enjoy the North Norfolk coast. In June anything can and does turn up on this fantastic stretch of wild coastline.

Join our relaxed-pace guided birdwatching holiday as we spend a week in a wonderful, comfortable hotel where the birdwatching begins on the doorstep. Each day we enjoy an exciting birdwatching trip as we visit some of Britain’s flagship nature reserves and hidden corners in this beautiful area.

Distinctive windmills break the Norfolk skyline

With a full week in the area, we can really take our time to watch resident birds along with the summer migrants and all the other wildlife in this super area. Drawing on our many years' experience and knowledge of leading birdwatching trips in Norfolk, we will be able to enjoy lots of birds and wildlife in this remarkable area and plenty of laughs along the way.

Dartford Warbler, one of the many summer species we'll be looking for here

We hope to see such charismatic bird species as Avocet, Bittern, Bearded Tit, Marsh Harrier, Barn Owl, Common Crane, Dartford Warbler, Wood Lark and Cetti's Warbler. The main focus for this week will be the breeding birds that make their home here. The North Norfolk coast is one of the best places to enjoy great views of so many birds. We have an excellent chance of enjoying some very special birds indeed including Nightjar, Stone Curlew, Little Tern, Turtle Dove and perhaps a real rarity or two. Highlights of previous June trips have included Spectacled Warbler, Pacific Golden Plover and one summer we were thrilled to see the very rare Great Knot and share great views with all our group. Of course, in Norfolk there's always the good chance of something special. Expect to see around 130 bird species during our stay in this magical part of the world.

Waiting for Nightjars

It is always magical to be out at dusk looking and listening to Nightjars.

During our tour we may also visit the famous nature reserves at RSPB Titchwell, Cley NWT, Holkham NNR, Welney WWT and Holme Bird Observatory. 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 as many bird species as possible. The pace of the tour will be relaxed as we have a full week to enjoy the birdwatching delights of North Norfolk.

On this small-group guided birdwatching tour, we will take a maximum of six participants to make sure that everyone enjoys individual attention and the best possible opportunities for watching the all birds that we encounter. At Birdwatching Trips we work hard to ensure that everyone enjoys the best possible guided birdwatching experience.
