Peace & Quiet And Your Hobby
‘Twitchers’ visit Winterton-on-Sea in great numbers all year round. The Dunes and the surrounding area in Norfolk are home to 30% of the UK’s breeding population. And adding to that a great number of migratory birds flock to the beaches, dunes and wetlands north of Winterton-on-Sea
Every summer the endangered Little Tern arrives in growing numbers to nest and raise their young on Winterton Beach in one of only two colonies
found in the UK, although numbers are declining. The RSPB now organises protection staffed by volunteers and fencing but domestic pets continue to cause problems. Please visit the RSPB website for more information on the local bird populations and how to volunteer your services to assist the Little Terns.
If you are a keen or dedicated wildlife photographer then Winterton-on-Sea is the perfect location for you to enhance your digital skills or build a spectacular image library. Either way, the perfect location for your bird watching experience is Henrys Cottage, even the extensive garden attracts many visitors and the cottage is only a few minutes away from the nearby dunes and the protected Little Tern nesting colony.
Please check for any promotional offers that could well be available for midweek or off-season nights, especially tailored for twitchers and bird-watchers wishing to visit the RSPB sanctuary in Winterton-on-Sea.
