Sculthorpe Moor

One of the sites that I've grown very fond of in Norfolk is Sculthorpe Moor, run by the Hawk and Owl Trust. It's usually quiet, but it has good boardwalk paths through the woodland and along to reed beds and marsh. There are hides and viewing screens along the way and the feeders are always well stocked.
And where there are feeders, you will get plenty of birds. Such a good variety too, with the usual woodland mix and some raptors too.

  14. We get all these birds here in Normandy with long tiled tits being my favourite of your selection. We'll soon start hearing the woodpeckers again, drumming to attract a mate :) #AnimalTales

  15. The Long tailed Tit looks very cartoon like, as if it's body is too big for the rest of it
