The North Norfolk Year

North Norfolk is famous for offering high quality birdwatching at all times of year. This is a result of Norfolk’s strategic location facing the continent, its long coastline and its extremely diverse range of coastal and inland habitats, many of which enjoy protection as nature reserves.

The landscape variety is extraordinary, from sea cliffs to shingle ridges and wide sandy beaches, extensive salt marshes, reedbeds and grazing ‘fresh marshes’, conifer and deciduous woodland, parkland, farmland and beautiful hidden river valleys. To complete the scene, the area boasts charming red-roofed, flint-clad villages and stunning churches and windmills set against wide and ever-changing skies. There is no better setting in which to enjoy Britain’s best birdwatching!
