Depending on the time of year, it is a short drive (or even walk) to observe Bittern, Marsh Harrier, Bearded Tit, Swallowtail Butterfly, Barn Owl and much more. We really are spoilt for choice in Norfolk.
A recent client kindly commented after a summer Swallowtail tour:
Hi Jim, just wanted to thank for such a fantastic afternoon on your guided tour. We really did benefit from your expert guidance and extensive knowledge of flora and fauna. Our aim on the tour was to see the swallowtail butterflies which, with your assistance and impressive knowledge of where to look, allowed us to achieve our goal. Thanks to the diverse nature of the Reserve and your well-prepared tour, we saw a lot more than we could have hoped for. Amazing views of a Marsh Harrier, the distinctive sound and sight of a tree creeper, stunning dragonflies, teams of comma butterflies and close-up views of white admirals were amongst a few of our favourites. We were all amazed at your incredible ability to identify birds from their call or song alone. So, even though we might not have seen a reed warbler, at least we can say we heard it!
We will definitely like to book you for another tour, maybe at a different time of year to allow us to see different species the local reserves have to offer. It was a real pleasure to meet you again and thank you for making the day so successful. Kind regards , Elaine Parsley"
