Evening Bird Walk – Carlton Marshes

Friday 19th May (Book place with Kathy)

There are some amazing wildlife hotspots dotted along the length of the Waveney Valley, but SWT’s Nature Reserve at Carlton Marshes is one of the jewels in the crown. These botanically rich marsh, dyke and lagoon systems attract an abundance of insects and are a magnet for birds. Carlton Marshes is well known to most WBC members and many have been an integral part of its development. SWT now have an opportunity to expand the reserve and currently are in the midst of a million pound appeal. Suffolk Broads manager, Matt Gooch, will accompany our group as we pass by the new lands and he will be able to talk about future plans for this unique part of Suffolk. The group will take a circular route around the reserve, walking anticlockwise to the river wall and to the ferry crossing. We will then take the ferry to the Waveney Inn for a beer, tea, coffee, or soft drink and return via Spratt’s Water back to the car park.

Leaders: Matt Gooch and Roger Walsh
Meet: Carlton Marshes car park
Time: 6 p.m. onwards
