Fridays in January and February

With shorter days and colder temperatures in Northern Europe over winter, Holkham National Nature Reserve welcomes thousands of wildfowl, who spend this season on our grazing and salt marshes. Huge skeins of Pink-Footed Geese, massive flocks of Wigeon and Teal and bustling gaggles of Brent Geese provide spectacular viewing for birdwatchers. Snow Buntings and Shore Larks also join the crowds. Join the expert Reserve Guide to witness this bird winter wonderland at its best.
