RSPB North Warren Nature Reserve
Get away from the crowds and experience the wild side of the Suffolk coast at RSPB North Warren. The marshes between Aldeburgh and Thorpeness are simply teeming with ducks, geese and wading birds from November to March and these can be easily watched from the footpaths along the beach. There's often a large starling roost in the reedbed.
In spring listen to nightingales and warblers singing from every bush or clump of reed, especially along the old railway line, or marvel at sky dancing marsh harriers above the reedbed.
Summer brings a kaleidoscope of colour as butterflies flit among the wild flowers. Look for many scarce plants on the shingle beach. Autumn is a time of change as migrant birds pass through and colours change from green to every shade of yellow, gold or brown.
There are several miles of public footpaths criss-crossing the reserve, offering a wide variety of circular walks to suit all abilities. Car parking, toilets and catering are available locally in Aldeburgh and Thorpeness. A reserve guide is available from RSPB Minsmere or Aldeburgh Tourist Information Centre.
Pay and Display Car park.
