Wings over Titchwell Marsh RSPB
Date: 15th and 16th May 2010. From 5am Dawn Chorus events to early evening.
Join the reserve team on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th May and see the fabulous birdlife Titchwell has to offer at the peak of spring migration. Whether your interest is in seeing the resident sky dancing marsh harriers and bearded tits, freshly arrived summer migrants like reed and sedge warblers or 'drop-in' northbound migrants like Temminck's stint....you are sure to have a great time! It's the perfect time of year for a rarity from the south to drop in, though we would be lucky to get a black winged stilt, especially one that stayed as long as Sammy (pictured right) From the car park right down to the beach, key locations will be manned by staff and volunteers who can help you see the fantastic diversity of birdlife Titchwell has at this time of year. Each location will be in touch by radio and there will be notice boards around the reserve keeping you up to date with what is being seen and where. Timed to correspond with the peak of spring migration, the reserve team are hoping to see more than a 100 species on the reserve each day. Apart from the dawn chorus events, taking part in the weekend is free and there is no need to book - just drop in and enjoy the spectacle as you feel able. Booking is essential for the dawn chorus events (see under events) which costs £12 for adults, £9 for children (includes breakfast) A Wings over Titchwell checklist will be given to you on entry so you can keep a tally of what you are seeing!
