Evening walk SWT Carlton Marshes NR33 8HU

Wednesday 22 May

A circular walk around this fantastic reserve famous for the American Bittern. Work should have begun on the new habitats and visitor centre which should give some idea just how amazing the reserve will be when it is finished.

We will scan the reedbeds and scrapes and listen to the evening chorus. Cuckoo and grasshopper warbler are usually a given here.

On reaching the river we will take the ferry across to Burgh St Peter for a reviving pint before continuing our walk.

Leader: Keith Watkins
Meet at Carlton Marshes car park for a 6:30pm start.
Contact Helen Gooderham to be included on the Leader’s list.

Bird Ringing Demonstrations - NT Dunwich Heath & RSPB Minsmere

Sessions start Thursday 11th April at RSPB Minsmere

Waveney Ringing Group (WRG) is a team of friendly individuals with a range of bird ringing expertise. The team consists of trainees, C-permit holders and A- permit holders, with training endorsements, all who are dedicated to our voluntary role of studying birds.

Waveney Ringing Group showcase bird ringing at National Trust Dunwich Heath (Tuesdays) and RSPB Minsmere (Thursdays) from Easter through to the Autumn migration period.  It's a great opportunity for youngsters to see birds close up - bring the family along to say hello.

National Trust Dunwich Heath Sessions : At Heath Barn on Tuesdays 08:00-12:00

RSPB Minsmere Easter Dates : In the Discovery Centre on Thursdays 10:00-16:00

No booking is necessary at either venue but birds are early risers so there is often more to see earlier in the day.  The sessions are weather dependent - we cannot bird ring in very wet and/or windy conditions so please check before travelling.
