Weekly wildlife roundup - Snowmageddon
Following the mild conditions over the festive period, we have now had the reminder that is it still mid-winter!!

The record is broken again
Since the start of the New Year, we have seen a dramatic increase in ‘diving’ ducks, especially pochard, and it could be down to several factors. In general, diving ducks are very scarce at Titchwell due to the lack of deep water but since late-December we have been experimenting with...

We managed to get all the last few cleaning jobs done in the Parrinder Hide this afternoon and were able to get the security fencing down to allow a few people into the hides before dusk. THE VIEWS ARE AMAZING!!! Helped by an amazing winter light, there was a large gull roost including at least one...
