Suffolk’S Coast & Heaths In Late Spring

From: £Contact us

Join us on our short break in Suffolk at the perfect time of year to see the very best of its spectacular wildlife ranging from marsh harriers and bitterns to emperor dragonflies and peacock butterflies.

In late spring, this beautiful and hugely diverse stretch of coastline has an extraordinary range of breeding birds. This is a heartland for breeding bitterns, marsh harriers, avocets, bearded tits and many other birds of coastal reedbeds and marshes. There are also extensive heaths, supporting woodlarks, Dartford warblers, tree pipits and stone curlews. Along the shore, dunes and very rare vegetated shingle hold a host of special plants and insects.

From a comfortable single base, we explore a wonderful range of Suffolk's finest coastal nature reserves, at a time of year when they are buzzing with life. We hope to hear nightingales and nightjars in song, see nesting gulls, terns and waders, watch marsh harriers and bitterns bringing food back to their nests and see an abundance of rare coastal plants in bloom and insects on the wing.
