Details for RSPB Titchwell Marsh

RSPB Titchwell Marsh is located directly on the north Norfolk coast close to sandy beaches and with great views and wheelchair accessible well built hides. Nature trails are also available which are great fun especially for children, and a visitor centre/shop is open most days.

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 hides.

In summer, marsh harriers float over the reeds, where bearded tits nest. On the lagoons are avocets, gulls and terns. In autumn and winter you can see up to 20 species of wading birds and lots of ducks and geese.

Viewing points:

Island Hide gives views over the bird-filled freshwater marsh and along the edge of the freshwater reedbed where you can watch bearded tits and water rails feeding. We now have a new Parrinder Hide as part of this project. Fen hide overlooks the freshwater reedbed and is the perfect spot from which to see bitterns, bearded tits and marsh harriers.

Nature trails:

Visitor Centre:

A well-stocked shop has a wide range of RSPB gifts and books and a...
