Where to watch birds in the Wensum Valley

This page aims to give members a guide to sites often mentioned by members recording birds in the Wensum Valley.  A series of guides is in progress and will be linked to each site name (pdf) as they are published (first published in the newsletter).  You can download the guide to your own computer (needs Adobe Acrobat reader), or view it in your browser online.

The best map for the valley is OS Explorer map Sheet 238: Dereham & Aylsham.  The grid references given are generally for the square or tetrad.  The existence of a site on this page does not indicate that rights of way exist.  Watching may be from a road or specified point courtesy of the landowner, although most of these are written as “Wensum Walks”.  Please be courteous and follow the country code.
