One of the best sites for waders in the county.
One of the best sites for waders in the county. The area is affected greatly by the tide, so best to check the tide table - if the tide is out the birds can be very distant. Birds seen should include large flocks of Plovers, Dunlin, Godwits and Avocets. Mediterranean Gulls roost in large numbers at certain times of the year. This is a good spot for Curlew Sandpipers and over the years has produced a large proportion of the vagrant waders in Norfolk - it used to attract Kentish Plover annually and Broad Billed Sandpiper most years. The site is best viewed form the underpass at the far end of ASDA car park (where you can leave your car) or the hide on stilts. The southern shore can be reached from the rugby club car park. If you fancy a walk, Berney Marshes RSPB is a 4 mile walk along the north wall and Burgh Castle the same distance on the south wall.
