Details

Join the RSPB in this once-in-a-lifetime experience at Snettisham Nature Reserve. Our experienced guide will take you to the best location in the reserve to view the Wader Spectacular: A rare occasion when tens of thousands of knot are pushed off the mudflats by the incoming tide and whirl together in a shimmering mass against the sun setting upon the sea.

You will learn the incredible story of their annual migration down to The Wash, why this location is such a key habitat for them and how to identify the other species of waders, waterfowl and gulls that call this part of the world home during the autumn and winter months.

**Please note: this is a sunset event, and attendees will therefore be leaving in the dark.**

Remember to bring along:
Torch for the walk back.
Wind/waterproofs
Suitable footwear.
Camera

Please contact the organiser (RSPB Snettisham) for a wheelchair access pass / instructions.
