Spring Migration

A 3-day tour looking for spring migrants and summer visitors mainly on the North Norfolk coast.

Spring Migration

This is a particularly exciting time of year to visit Norfolk for birdwatching. Many species are passing through on migration, on their way to their breeding grounds further north. Our summer birds are returning and activity levels are high, with lots of singing and display, which means that they can be at their most visible. In the spring, many of the birds we see are also at their brightest which enhances the overall spectacle. With such a variety of birds to see, these tours appeal to all interest levels and abilities.

The first migrants start to arrive in the middle of March, but by April the pace picks up noticeably. Ring Ouzels normally appear around the turn of the month, along with Yellow Wagtails, then Whinchats, Redstarts and all the summer warblers. By the second half of April, migration is in full swing and in the right conditions, numbers of migrants moving along the coast can be spectacular.

You can expect to see around 115-125 species across the three days.

Gift Vouchers

If you would like to give a gift to someone who is interested in birds then a gift voucher from The Bird ID Company is an ideal present.

The vouchers can be flexible, and used against any tour or tours over the following 12 months, or can be bought for a specific tour.
