RSPB Snettisham Nature Reserve

This is one place to witness two of the UK’s great wildlife spectacles. On big tides, as the water covers the mudflats, tens of thousands of wading birds are pushed off their feeding ground and settle on inlands in front of the RSPB hides.

Description

This is one place to witness two of the UK’s great wildlife spectacles. On big tides, as water covers the vast mudflats of the Wash, tens of thousands of wading birds are pushed off their feeding grounds and onto the roost banks and islands in front of the RSPB hides. In mid winter, a dawn or dusk visit rewards you with the sight of thousands of pink footed geese flying to or from the overnight roosts. Large numbers of common terns and black headed gulls nest on the reserve in summer, when there is spectacular display of shingle flowers.
