RSPB Titchwell Marsh is renowned for its bird-filled reedbeds, lagoons and marshes and it’s no wonder that this is one of the RSPB’s most popular nature reserves. Migrating birds make their home here at various times of the year, from cuckoos and swallows in the summer to overwintering Brent geese and golden plover.
During spring the sound of a bittern booming echoes across the reedbeds and heralds the start of the breeding season. Marsh harriers perform their mesmeric sky-dancing routines and by early summer the reserve is a nursery for harrier, avocet and gull chicks. At this time of year the reserve is a kaleidoscope of colour as iridescent dragonflies and damselflies dart in and out of the reeds and brightly coloured butterflies alight on flower heads in the wildlife garden.
Throughout the seasons, visitors are drawn to the big skies which drape Titchwell’s fabulous sandy beach. In winter the shoreline is home to snowbuntings which can be seen feeding along the strandline and during the summer, children thrill at the chance of collecting a variety of sea shells or snatching sight of a sea-star in a tidal pool.
