RSPB Birdwatching Coach Trip to Titchwell Marsh RSPB Reserve - Norfolk

The Loughborough RSPB Group invite you to join them on their coach trip to the RSPB reserve at Titchwell Marsh RSPB Reserve in Norfolk

This popular reserve on the north Norfolk coast has something for everyone. A walk from the visitor centre down to the sandy beach takes you past reedbeds and shallow lagoons, which are often full of birds. You can sit on benches or watch from spacious, wheelchair-accessible hides. More »

Autumn is the time for waders when, with luck, over 20 species could be seen around the reserve. Species such as curlew sandpiper, little stint and black-tailed godwit stop on the lagoons to feed on their return migration from their Arctic breeding grounds to their African wintering grounds. With the high spring tides, large numbers of waders can often be seen roosting on the lagoons. September is one of the best months to view bearded tits. The young gather in small flocks and can show very well feeding on seeds blown onto the mud near the Island Hide.

A well-stocked shop has a wide range of RSPB gifts and books and a large selection of telescopes and binoculars. They have a servery and inside eating area selling a selection of hot and cold food and drinks, as well as snacks and locally-made cakes.

The coach will leave from outside the Brockington Building, Loughborough University, Epinal Way, Loughborough at 8.00 am

Advanced bookings are essential for this trip, so if you wish to go use the Contact Us from the group website and give your name & contact details and the number to travel.

The cost is £20 for the coach (accompanied under 14s £5) All money is collected on the coach.

Please note:-

We do not ask for a deposit prior to the trip but assess the viability of the trip from bookings made. We are a small group and our trips are a large financial risk to us, we would ask that any cancellations made within 14 days of the trip or failure to travel, incur a £10 payment per booked seat. This ensures we can continue to offer field trips at a reasonable cost and remain financially sound.

We will endeavor to fill any cancelled places and be sympathetic to exceptional circumstances.
