Online Talk: Wildlife of the Halvergate Marshes in Spring

Date: Thursday 19 May 2022

Thursday 19th May 2022 from 7.30pm until 8.30pm BST.

The Halvergate Marshes are an extensive area of low-lying land in the Norfolk Broads, forming a rough triangle between Acle, Reedham and Great Yarmouth. It was traditionally used as grazing pasture. Water levels on the marshes were originally maintained by a complex network of dykes and drainage windmills. As well as creating conditions suitable for cattle, a rich variety of wildlife is also found here.

During this online event, Carl Chapman (Wildlife Tours & Education) will introduce us to some of the wildlife that you might expect to see on the Halvergate Marshes during spring.

This event will be followed by a guided walk across the marshes, led by Carl, on Sunday 22 May 2022 (to be booked separately, with a small charge). We will seek out the wildlife that occupies the reedbeds and waterways that are such a familiar part of this part of east Norfolk.

(This event is part of a series organised by The Mill and the Marsh Folk project to restore Stracey Arms Drainage Mill. The project is supported by a major grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund).  For all the details and to book your place, please click here.
