Details

As the days draw shorter and temperatures in Northern Europe plummet, Holkham National Nature Reserve sees the arrival of tens of thousands of wildfowl, who choose to spend their winters on our grazing and salt marshes. Huge skeins of Pink-Footed Geese, massive flocks of Wigeon and Teal and bustling gaggles of Brent Geese provide spectacular viewing for birdwatchers. Smaller rarities, such as Snow Buntings and Shore Larks also join the crowds and, following them all, are the hunting raptors. Join our expert Reserve Guide to witness this avian winter wonderland at its best.. At the end of the walk you’ll enjoy a well-deserved coffee and cake at The Lookout.

The Details
Our walk will include a variety of terrains - we suggest dressing for the weather and bringing water and snacks with you, plus binoculars if you have them. 10 people per tour. Tours last approximately 3 hours. Meet outside The Lookout on Lady Anne’s Drive. Car parking is included in your ticket - your car pass will be issued to you by the guide before your walk.

Let’s Protect Each Other
Full risk assessments will be carried out as part of our Good to Go industry standard. For the latest update on our approach to COVID-19 guidance, please read our useful information page.

Cancellation Policy
If you book tickets and government restrictions mean that you are unable to visit, or we need to cancel the event, you will receive a full refund of the ticket price. Otherwise, please see our cancellation policy.
