WINTER SPECIALITIES OF NORTHEAST NORFOLK
WINTER SPECIALITIES OF NORTHEAST NORFOLK

The Norfolk Broads hold a high proportion of the UK’s breeding population of Common Crane and with plenty of raptors to see on this winter trip, it should be a great day!

We visit the Lowestoft area looking for Purple Sandpiper, along with Common Eider, European Shag and Peregrine Falcon, whilst checking the docks for the possibility of a rare gull. Ross's, Iceland and Glaucous have all appeared in the past years. We will have lunch overlooking the North Sea, where Red-throated Diver, Common Guillemot and Razorbill could be seen before we spend the afternoon at Hickling Broad. Here the sight of up to 40 Western Marsh Harriers and Common Cranes coming into roost in the reed-bed is one not to be missed!

Hen Harrier, Merlin and Western Barn Owl are regular, whilst Pink-footed Geese, Whooper Swan and Eurasian Woodcock are likely to be seen along with Chinese Water Deer.
